The longlist for the Booker Prize, a major UK literary prize, was announced today. As the New York Times points out, it includes several authors who have previously won the Booker, including J.M. Coetzee and A.S. Byatt, and who have been nominated before, including William Trevor, Colm Toibin and Sarah Waters. The Guardian handicaps the nominees in more detail. The winner, who will receive $82,500, will be announced October 6.
