MAN BOOKER LONGLIST 2009

Irish interest on the Man Booker Dozen list - always fun! William Trevor and Colm Tóibín have both been longlisted with their novels Love and Summer and Brooklyn respectively. Go n-éirí an bóthar leo.

Addendum: Eimear has pointed out that Ed O'Loughlin is also Irish. Great! Three Irish writers in the dozen. Not bad at all!

Isn't that Ed O'Loughlin Irish too? His book looks interesting. Haven't read any of them, sadly.

My reading list just gets bigger and bigger. My money's on William Trevor.

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

I'm going to back Colm. I think he's a fabulous writer and a great raconteur too.
I'll be hung, drawn and quartered for admitting this, but I'm not a huge fan of Trevor...
