The Booker Prize - 2008

The longlist for The Man Booker Prize - 2008 has just been announced and there are two Australian based authors on the list.

The Lost Dog by Michelle de Krester has won several major awards in Australia and is a book I have been meaning to put on my "to read" list but I think other (perhaps "easier" books) have been pushing it aside.

I have seen A Fraction of the Whole by Steve Toltz around but again, I think I have been avoiding this one too - mainly because of it's size.

Lucky I'm not a judge for the Booker!
