This morning Booker Prize judges announced the 13-author “Man Booker Dozen” longlist for the 2009 edition of the £50,000 literary prize.

The judges sorted through 138 books to pick the prestigious longlist. The final list includes: Peter Carey for Parrot and Oliver in America and David Mitchell for The Thousand Autumns of Zacob de Zoet.

On Twitter, critics are already weighing in. Edward Champion wrote: “Notable Booker snubs: Martin Amis and Scarlett Thomas.” Novelist Ian Rankin wrote: “Keeping up a red-hot streak of form, yet again I have not read a single book on this year’s Booker long-list.”

The complete list follows after the jump.
