A long list of longlists...

Feast your eyes on a whole host of titles that are up for literary awards this year. 
The Booker Prizes exist to reward the finest in fiction. The symmetrical relationship between the Booker Prize and the International Booker Prize ensures that the Booker honours fiction on a global basis. Awarded annually for a single book, written in another language and translated into English, this prize aims to encourage more reading of quality fiction from all over the world, and has already had an impact on those statistics in the UK. Translators are included in brackets.
