2019 Booker Prize Longlist Announced

The first-ever Booker Prize was awarded in 1969. Since then, the Booker Prize Foundation—and its panel of esteemed judges—has celebrated the “best novel of the year written in English and published in the United Kingdom” annually. Yesterday, this year’s longlist was announced. The list of 13, which includes authors from Canada, Ireland, Mexico, Nigeria, the UK, and more, will ultimately be whittled down to a six-title shortlist (announced September 3) and a single winner (awarded October 14). Below you’ll find the longlist, with titles linked to Booklist reviews when available, in all its glory. Congratulations to all!
