The Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2010 Longlist

This year’s 13-author strong “Man Booker Dozen” longlist was just announced, and while it doesn’t include many new names (in fact, Peter Carey has already won the Booker — twice) and there were a few notable snubs (Martin Amis, Ian McEwan), it does include several books that are recent Flavorpill favorites — most notably David Mitchell’s The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet and Emma Donoghue’s Room. Click through to view the final list, and leave comment if you’ve got a hunch on who will win the £50,000 literary prize.
