Mann Booker long list announced

Ian McEwan’s On Chesil Beach heads the 2007 Man Booker long list. McEwan is one of the few notable novelists to make the long list this year, which The Guardian described as “low key.”

It’s also briefer than in the past. There are 13 nominated books. Normally, 18 to 24 books make the long list.

Also on the long list are:

  • Darkmans, Nicola Barker
  • Self Help, Edward Docx
  • The Gift Of Rain, Tan Twan Eng
  • The Gathering, Anne Enright
  • The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Mohsin Hamid
  • The Welsh Girl, Peter Ho Davies
  • Mister Pip, Lloyd Jones
  • Gifted, Nikita Lalwani
  • What Was Lost, Catherine O’Flynn
  • Consolation, Michael Redhill
  • Animal’s People, Indra Sinha
  • Winnie & Wolf by A.N. Wilson

The Man Booker shortlist will be announced September 6 and the winner will be announced October 16.
