29 July 2015

A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara and The Year of the Runaways by Sunjeev Sahota have been longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2015.

Michael Wood, Chair of the 2015 judges commented: "We had a great time choosing this list. Discussions weren’t always peaceful, but they were always very friendly. We were lucky in our companions and the submissions were extraordinary. The longlist could have been twice as long, but we’re more than happy with our final choice. The range of different performances and forms of these novels is amazing. All of them do something exciting with the language they have chosen to use."
