Picks from the Man Booker Prize 2017 Long List

"Only when we’d finally selected our 13 novels did we fully realize the huge energy, imagination and variety in them as a group. The longlist showcases a diverse spectrum — not only of voices and literary styles but of protagonists too, in their culture, age and gender. Nevertheless we found there was a spirit common to all these novels: though their subject matter might be turbulent, their power and range were life-affirming – a tonic for our times." – Baroness Lola Young, Chair of the 2017 Judges
