This week the New Yorker is announcing the longlists for the National Book Awards. The categories are Young People’s Literature, Translated Literature, Poetry, Nonfiction, and Fiction. We’re concentrating on the big one today, the fiction longlist and there are ten books in the list.
It’s an eclectic selection featuring a range of authors, some already popular in our review section, others not. Without further ado, there are all ten books in the longlist with links to buy and links to reviews if we have them.
We have that shortlist here so without further ado here are the books in the running for the 2018 Man Booker prize.
The 2018 winner will be announced on Tuesday 16th October, about a month from now in London’s Guildhall. The winning ceremony will be aired on the BBC and we’ll bring you news of that winner as soon as it breaks!
There’s no denying it’s been a tumultuous couple of years in the world and lots of people, authors, and artists have shown concern for the future. Those concerns have certainly come through in published works as the nonfiction longlist shows.
And here it is, the ten books selection for the National Book Awards Longlist for Nonfiction.
The longlist for poetry is an eclectic collection with a range of poetry styles and collections. Some we’ve heard of, some poets are new to us, but we do know that if it’s in the longlist then it’s almost guaranteed to be a fantastic collection.
And here it is, the National Book Awards Longlist for Poetry 2018:
In previous years the National Book Awards has not awarded a prize for translated literature so this is the inaugural prize in this category. Many of the books have already received favourable attention around the literary world and now they are back in the limelight today.
We still have poetry and nonfiction to go but for today here’s the longlist for translated literature.
As always it’s an exciting list and as we all know, YA isn’t just for kids so why not pick your favourite and give it a read! Here’s the full longlist for Young People’s Literature.
