Slog: News & Arts

RSS icon Comments on England to the rest of the literary world: "Nothing that exciting happening over here!"


Contrary to your post headline, I think this list is more exciting than a longlist of all the usual suspects.

Hmm, this may be a naive comment, but it's kind of cool (McEwan notwithstanding) that relative unknowns are getting the spotlight.

Now stop bugging me so I can get back to my 3rd reading of the latest Harry Potter.

He may not deserve the prize, but McEwan deserves to be on the longlist for On Chesil Beach.
