As I expected, this year will be a fight between Satin Island and A Little Life but who really saw those other four books coming? Not this guy.
Full list is as follows:
Satin Island, Tom McCarthy
A Little Life, Hanya Yanagigara
A Spool of Blue Thread, Anne Tyler
The Year of the Runaways, Sunjeev Sahota
A Brief History of Seven Killings, Marlon James
The Fisherman, Chigozie Obioma
Have you read any of the longlist? Between Tyler, Sahota, James, and Obioma, what should I check out next?
The winner will be announced 13 October.
