The Booker Prize for Fiction longlist 2019

The longlist for the 2019 Booker Prize has been announced. The 13 books listed on the longlist are:


Chair of the 2019 judges, Peter Florence, says:

‘If you only read one book this year, make a leap. Read all 13 of these. There are Nobel candidates and debutants on this list. There are no favourites; they are all credible winners. They imagine our world, familiar from news cycle disaster and grievance, with wild humour, deep insight and a keen humanity. These writers offer joy and hope. They celebrate the rich complexity of English as a global language. They are exacting, enlightening and entertaining. Really – read all of them.’

These authors, who hail from countries all over the world, were selected from 151 submissions. The shortlist will be announced on 3 September, with the winner to be announced on 14 October at an award ceremony in London, that will also be televised.
