The longlist for the 2012 Miles Franklin Award was released last night. 

The list is:

Five Bells by Gail Jones
Foal's Bread by Gillian Mears

Cold Light by Frank Moorhouse
Past the Shallows by Favel Parrett
The Street Sweeper by Elliot Perlman
Animal People by Charlotte Wood

Seems like a pretty good list - decent mixture of old and new, M and F, etc, etc.  Also good to see that the main award website was updated in a timely manner.

The shortlist will be announced on May 3, and the winner on 20 June.
