IMPAC Dublin Award longlist
The 2007 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award longlist was announced... and it's a rather long list indeed, with 138 contenders on it. Get the Guardian story here and get the longlist here. Shockingly enough, I've actually read a few of the books on the list. Of course, with 138 contenders, one wonders if the judges simple pooled their reading lists and put off making decisions until later.
