Man Booker Prize Longlist 2015

A wish list by Waterstones Booksellers

The longlist for this year's Man Booker Prize has been announced. This year’s list of 13 books was selected by a panel of five judges chaired by Michael Wood, who said: “The range of different performances and forms of these novels is amazing. All of them do something exciting with the language they have chosen to use.” The judges considered 156 books for this year’s prize and, first awarded in 1969, it is the second year in which it has been open to any writer, writing originally in English and published in the UK, irrespective of nationality.

“ ‘Telling a story is like sowing a seed,’ Estebanico cautions, ‘you always hope to see it become a beautiful tree, with firm roots and branches that soar up in the sky. But it is a peculiar sowing, for you will never know whether your seed spouts or dies.’ Mighty oaks from tiny acorns grow and Lalami’s story is a fertile blend of fact and fiction.” - The Financial Times
