Man Booker Prize 2009 longlist

The Man Booker Prize longlist for 2009 is announced.

You may catch it over here on its website at  Man Booker Prize Longlist 2009.

I own some of the titles but not all. Sarah Hall is a friend so I feel a little partial towards her. For that matter, I’m glad Hilary Mantel got in.  Was keeping my fingers crossed for Tash Aw but there are no Asian writers on the longlist this year.

I was also pleased that AS Byatt’s The Children’s Book got in. Was so hoping.
