The longlist for the 2017 Man Booker Prize has been announced!
This is the premier literary award for books written in the English language and published in the UK over the previous year.
Past winners include Margaret Atwood, J.M. Coetzee, Yana Martel for The Life of Pi, Hilary Mantel, and Richard Flanagan for The Narrow Road to the Deep North. The winner of the 2016 Prize was Paul Beatty for The Sellout, a book that I profoundly disliked!
I am hoping for better luck this year and I am impressed with the longlist of 13, which are as follows. You can click on the book title to go to GoodReads for more information.
