Man Booker Prize 2011 longlist announced

The longlist for the much-coveted 2011 Man Booker Prize for Fiction has been announced today (26 July), with four first time novelists and a former Man Booker Prize winner making it into the selection of 13 books. A total of 138 titles were considered by the judges, with the winner to be announced in October. Author and former Director-General of MI5, Dame Stella Rimington, chaired the panel. "We are delighted by the quality and breadth of our longlist, which emerged from an impassioned discussion," she said. "The list ranges from the Wild West to multi-ethnic London via post-Cold War Moscow and Bucharest."
