The 2013 Man Booker Prize Longlist

July 23, 2013 at 11:30 am Leave a comment

My computer conked out over the weekend, so here I am sitting in a library, wet through from walking a long way in the rain, trying to think of something nice to say, but no, my nightmare week continues. Here is the longlist:

Five Star Billionaire by Tash Aw
We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo
The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton
Harvest by Jim Crace
The Marrying of Chani Kaufman by Eve Harris
The Kills by Richard House
The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri
Unexploded by Alison MacLeod
TransAtlantic by Colum McCann
Almost English by Charlotte Mendelson
A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki
The Spinning Heart by Donal Ryan
The Testament of Mary by Colm Tóibín

The Testament of Mary but not How To Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia? Cock-eyed.
