The 2016 Booker Dozen: A U.S. Reader's Guide

It's here! I find myself enjoying the Booker Prize longlist even more now that it's also open to U.S. authors. And this year is a good one. Each of the titles intrigues me enough to read it, and none are over 500 pages! The Ones I've Already Read The Sellout  by Paul Beatty (3.5 stars)--I need to review this one still! My Name is Lucy Barton  by Elizabeth Strout (4.5 stars) The Ones Available in the U.S. Now Hot Milk  by Deborah Levy His Bloody Project  by Graeme Macrae Burnet ( only $5.99 for Kindle !) The North Water  by Ian McGuire Hystopia  by David Means The Many  by Wyl Menmuir Eileen  by Ottessa Moshfegh Work Like Any Other  by Virginia Reeves The Ones Coming to the U.S. The Schooldays of Jesus  by J.M. Coetzee (February 21, 2017) Serious Sweet  by A.L. Kennedy (October 18, 2016) All That Man Is by David Szalay (October 4, 2016) The Ones We Hope Make Their Way to the U.S. Do Not Say We Have Nothing  by Madeleine Thien
