Well, this year's Booker Prize longlist is out:
  • Carey, Peter Theft: A Love Story (Faber & Faber)
  • Desai, Kiran The Inheritance of Loss (Hamish Hamilton)
  • Edric, Robert Gathering the Water (Doubleday)
  • Gordimer, Nadine Get a Life (Bloomsbury)
  • Grenville, Kate The Secret River (Canongate)
  • Hyland, M.J. Carry Me Down (Canongate)
  • Jacobson, Howard Kalooki Nights (Jonathan Cape)
  • Lasdun, James Seven Lies (Jonathan Cape)
  • Lawson, Mary The Other Side of the Bridge (Chatto & Windus)
  • McGregor, Jon So Many Ways to Begin (Bloomsbury)
  • Matar, Hisham In the Country of Men (Viking)
  • Messud, Claire The Emperor’s Children (Picador)
  • Mitchell, David Black Swan Green (Sceptre)
  • Murr, Naeem The Perfect Man (William Heinemann)
  • O’Hagan, Andrew Be Near Me (Faber & Faber)
  • Robertson, James The Testament of Gideon Mack (Hamish Hamilton)
  • St Aubyn, Edward Mother’s Milk (Picador)
  • Unsworth, Barry The Ruby in her Navel (Hamish Hamilton)
  • Waters, Sarah The Night Watch (Virago)
I haven't read any of these so have no idea who to root for. Though I hear In the Country of Men is good. Theft too. But Peter Carey winning it for the third time? Hmmm.

UPDATE:
The Times has a write-up on the Booker longlist.
