The long list this year is….
The Children’s Book by AS Byatt
Summertime by JM Coetzee
The Quickening Maze by Adam Foulds
How to Paint a Dead Man by Sarah Hall
The Wilderness by Samantha Harvey
Me Cheeta: The Autobiography by James Lever
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
The Glass Room by Simon Mawer
Not Untrue and Not Unkind by Ed O’Loughlin
Heliopolis by James Scudamore
Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín (review coming soon)
Love and Summer by William Trevor
The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters
I have read 5 of the list, counting Wolf Hall which I didn’t manage to finish.
I have just ordered the rest of the list, so I’m afraid you’ll have to put up with quite a few Booker books on my blog for the next few months.
I am so happy that Wilderness made the long list. I really hope it wins, as it is one of my favourite books of the year so far.
What did you think of the list?
Are you planning to read them all?
