The Ones We Hope Make Their Way to the U.S. Soon
There are no former winners on the longlist, but eight have been shortlisted before (Rachel Cusk, Xiaolu Guo, Samantha Harvey, Heather O'Neill, Kamila Shamsie, Ali Smith--twice, Anne Tyler--twice, Sarah Waters--twice). Three other authors have been longlisted before (Lissa Evans, Patricia Ferguson, Rachel Seiffert--twice.) Ali Smith, Anne Tyler and Sarah Waters have all been shortlisted twice and longlisted once before--could it be the year for one of them? Over all, I think it's a very intriguing mix, and I'm eager to dig into the eighteen titles I haven't read yet. First up? Probably Outline by Rachel Cusk, which was already on my nightstand.
