Free Samples of the Man Booker Longlist

manbookerThe Man Booker Longlist has been revealed for 2014. While a number of the titles will be released later this year, we’ve collected free samples of many of the books on the list.

The shortlist will be revealed on September 9th and the winner announced on October 14th.
