2011 Man Booker longlist

Man Booker longlist has been announced. This award recognizes authors from Britain, Ireland and the Commonwealth countries. This year we find three Canadian titles on the list. They are Alison Pick, Esi Edugyan and Patrick deWitt. The shortlist and ultimately the winner will be announced in the fall. A few of these titles aren't yet available in Canada or are just plain sold out. Once they are available we'll be sure to get copies.
