Man Booker Dozen Announced

manbooker2009.jpgThe Booker Prize Foundation has announced the 13-author “Man Booker Dozen” longlist for the 2009 edition of the £50,000 literary prize. Last year Aravind Adiga won the annual prize for “The White Tiger.”

Here’s a statement from James Naughtie, judicial chair: “The five Man Booker judges have settled on thirteen novels as the longlist for this year’s prize. We believe it to be one of the strongest lists in recent memory, with two former winners, four past-shortlisted writers, three first-time novelists and a span of styles and themes that make this an outstandingly rich fictional mix.”

Here are a few of the nominees, full list follows after the jump…
A.S. Byatt “The Children’s Book”
J.M. Coetzee “Summertime”
Adam Foulds “The Quickening Maze”
