Booker longlist announced

Folio authors and introducers represented among nominees and judges

The longlist for the 2010 Man Booker Prize was announced yesterday. The 13 titles include Parrot and Olivier in America by Peter Carey, who has won the Booker Prize twice before, once for Oscar and Lucinda, published in a Folio edition last year. Helen Dunmore, who introduced the Folio edition of Anna Karenina, is longlisted for The Betrayal.

Andrew Motion, former Poet Laureate and introducer of our recent edition of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, is chair of the judges. He said of the longlisted books: ‘Wide-ranging in their geography and their concern, they tell powerful stories which make the familiar strange and cover an enormous range of history and feeling.’ The judging panel includes Frances Wilson, introducer of the Folio editions of Daniel Defoe’s Roxana, The Adventures of Casanova, Henry James’s The Ambassadors and The Wings of the Dove.

The shortlist will be announced on 7 September and the winner will be revealed on Tuesday 12 October.
