The Booker Prize 2022 Longlist

July 28, 2022 · 6:47 pm

Booker Prize 2022 LonglistThe Booker Prize longlist was introduced on Tuesday. The 13 titles are:

Glory by NoViolet Bulawayo
Belief by Hernan Diaz
The Bushes by Percival Everett
Sales space by Karen Pleasure Fowler
Treacle Walker by Alan Garner
The Seven Moons of Maali Almeida by Shahan Karunatilaka
Small Issues Like These by Claire Keegan
Case Research by Graeme Macrae Burnet
The Colony by Audrey Magee
Maps of Our Spectacular Our bodies by Maddie Mortimer
Nightcrawling by Leila Mottley
After Sappho by Selby Lynn Schwartz
Oh William! by Elizabeth Strout

In my predictions publish, I accurately guessed three out of the 13 titles, and I’m happy to see Case Research by Graeme Macrae Burnet on the longlist. I’m trying ahead to studying ‘Belief’ by Hernan Diaz and ‘The Colony’ by Audrey Magee which had been my different two predictions. I’ve already picked up a duplicate of ‘Sales space’ by Karen Pleasure Fowler from the library this week which is a historic novel concerning the household of John Wilkes Sales space, the person who shot and killed Abraham Lincoln.

A number of the latest Booker Prize longlists have been dominated by well-known authors – notably in 2019 and 2021 – whereas this yr’s choice has seen a number of extra surprises, equivalent to 87-year-old Alan Garner nominated alongside 20-year-old Leila Mottley, the youngest ever particular person to be longlisted for her debut novel. I’ve heard unanimously constructive evaluations of ‘The Bushes’ by Percival Everett which is a couple of collection of murders in a rural city in Mississippi and ‘Small Issues Like These’ by Claire Keegan which addresses what occurred within the Magdalene laundries in Eire.

The shortlist will probably be introduced on Tuesday 6 September. What are your ideas on this yr’s longlist?
