The 2022 Booker Prize longlist

The longlist for the 2022 Booker Prize has been announced! The Booker Prize has brought recognition, reward and readership to outstanding fiction for over 50 years. It is awarded annually to the best novel of the year written in English and published in the UK or Ireland.

Below are the 13 longlisted titles:

Neil MacGregor, chair of the Booker Prize 2022 judges said: ‘The task of whittling 169 down to 13 has been as enjoyable as it has been arduous. We, the five judges, bring such different approaches and experiences to our reading, that left to ourselves, we would probably have produced five very different lists. But we read these books as a group, disagreeing and discussing, comparing, reconsidering and re-reading, and together we reached a striking degree of consensus. These are thirteen books — challenging, stimulating, surprising, nourishing — that we recommend for close and enjoyable reading.’


The shortlist of six books will be announced on September 6. You can find out more about the Booker Prize longlist here.
