J.M. Coetzee Longlisted for the 2016 Man Booker Prize
28 Jul 2016
Congratulations to Honorary PEN SA member J.M. Coetzee, who has been longlisted for the Man Booker Prize:
The longlist for the 2016 Man Booker Prize has been announced, including JM Coetzee.
There are 13 books on the list, six are by women and seven by men, with seven British authors and four American. Coetzee is described as “South African-Australian” on the list.
The Nobel Laureate, who has won the Booker Prize twice before, has made this year’s longlist with The Schooldays of Jesus, which is not due out until 26 September – meaning few people beyond the Booker Prize judges have read it.
