Over five decades, the Booker Prize has become synonymous with literary excellence. Each year, the prize spotlights outstanding fiction—first with the release of a longlist of finalists, then a narrowed-down shortlist, and finally the announcement of the winner.

This year’s Booker Prize longlist was announced on July 26 and called out 13 worthy novels by seasoned and debut authors alike. The longlist also made Booker Prize history by including both the youngest—Leila Mottley, age 20—and the oldest—Alan Garner, age 87—nominees ever recognized.

And the Nominees Are...

  1. Glory by NoViolet Bulawayo
  2. Trust by Hernan Diaz
  3. The Trees by Percival Everett
  4. Booth by Karen Joy Fowler
  5. Treacle Walker by Alan Garner
  6. The Seven Moons of Maali Almeida by Shehan Karunatilaka
  7. Small Things Like These by Claire Keegan
  8. Case Study by Graeme Macrae Burnet
  9. The Colony by Audrey Magee
  10. Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies by Maddie Mortimer
  11. Nightcrawling by Leila Mottley
  12. After Sappho by Selby Lynn Schwartz
  13. Oh William! by Elizabeth Strout

Stay Tuned!
