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.
