This is always such a fun time of year when the award season really starts ramping up! The Man Booker long list has been announced, and it’s a big deal this year because, as you’ll see from this link, this is the first year that writers from around the globe (the work must be written in English) can compete. You will see some American authors on this list–of course you’ll remember Karen Joy Fowler’s book We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves as one of Literary Masters’ book selections from last season. (Can you hear the sound of patting on back right now?)
Click here for the link to see the twelve titles on the long list; this will eventually be whittled down to six for the short list. What do you think? Have the judges got it right this year?
