2011 MAN BOOKER LONG LIST IS ANNOUNCED…& guess who made it on???

The long list was announced this Tuesday.  Did you notice #4???

  • Julian Barnes The Sense of an Ending
  • Sebastian Barry On Canaan’s Side
  • Carol Birch Jamrach’s Menagerie
  • Patrick deWitt THE SISTERS BROTHERS
  • Esi Edugyan Half Blood Blues
  • Yvvette Edwards A Cupboard Full of Coats
  • Alan Hollinghurst The Stranger’s Child
  • Stephen Kelman Pigeon English
  • Patrick McGuinness The Last Hundred Days
  • A.D. Miller Snowdrops
  • Alison Pick Far to Go
  • Jane Rogers The Testament of Jessie Lamb
  • D.J. Taylor Derby Day

I’ve been interested in Pigeon English by Stephen Kelman since seeing it in the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt catalogue.  And I always love Julian Barnes. But, no surprise, my vote goes to The Sisters Brothers.

Anyone else have a longlist favorite?
