2012 Man Booker Prize Long List

J. M. Cornwell "Reviewer at Large"
The list author says: "I spend a lot of time reading the publishing news and blogs about publishing. I also write a blog or five about similar subjects. Since the list came out today, what better time than to showcase the latest aspirants to the 2012 Man Booker Prize.

I always feel I've missed something with the big prize notices come out. I need to be financially stable enough (wealthy) to be able to pick up all the long listed books and read them before the winner is chosen. Starting now would be good. In the meantime, read them for me. Most of them sound interesting in one way or another and well worth the reading."
