2019 Booker Prize Longlist

First things first, it’s the end of an era but I’m so glad we don’t have to type Man Booker Prize anymore. The Man Group announced earlier this year that, after nearly two decades, they would no longer be sponsoring the prize, so it’s back to the traditional Booker Prize. And how did the judges do, bringing the prize into a new era? There’s already a lot of discussion over at the Goodreads group, so feel free to go join in here. The links below are for the U.S. editions at Amazon; several are not published yet, but each (how refreshing) have a publication date.
