The longlist for the 2010 Man Booker Prize has been announced.

The longlisted works are:

Peter Carey, Parrot and Olivier in America (Faber and Faber)
Emma Donoghue, Room (Pan MacMillan - Picador)
Helen Dunmore, The Betrayal (Penguin - Fig Tree)
Damon Galgut, In a Strange Room (Grove Atlantic - Atlantic Books)
Howard Jacobson, The Finkler Question (Bloomsbury)
Andrea Levy, The Long Song (Headline Publishing Group - Headline Review)
Tom McCarthy, C (Random House - Jonathan Cape)
David Mitchell, The Thousand Autumns of Zacob de Zoet (Hodder & Stoughton - Sceptre)

Christos Tsiolkas, The Slap (Grove Atlantic - Tuskar Rock)
Alan Warner, The Stars in the Bright Sky (Random House - Jonathan Cape)

Carey as the only previous winner and two Australians on the list in Carey and Tsiolkas.  Though I'm wondering if Australia might just be able to claim another connection with Paul Murray's Skippy Dies.  Must check that one out.
