2012 Man Booker Prize Longlist

| No TrackBacks
The novels on the 2012 Man Booker Prize longlist have been released.  You could be forgiven for thinking that the list is becoming more and more "British" as only 3 others are included (one Malaysian, one South African and one Indian).  The difficulty we always have with these lists is that we don't know what was entered or called in by the judges.  But really, NO Australians?  In the year of All That I Am and Foal's Bread?

The longlist:

Nicola Barker, The Yips (Fourth Estate)
Ned Beauman, The Teleportation Accident (Sceptre)
André Brink, Philida (Harvill Secker)
Tan Twan Eng, The Garden of Evening Mists (Myrmidon Books)
Michael Frayn, Skios (Faber & Faber)
Rachel Joyce, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry (Doubleday)
Deborah Levy, Swimming Home (And Other Stories)
Hilary Mantel, Bring up the Bodies (Fourth Estate)
Alison Moore, The Lighthouse (Salt)
Will Self, Umbrella (Bloomsbury)
Jeet Thayil, Narcopolis (Faber & Faber)
Sam Thompson, Communion Town (Fourth Estate)

The shortlist of 6 novels will be announced on September 11 with the winner named on October 16.
