IMPAC Longlist announced. . .

It's a huge longlist with 156 titles, but what a great list of reading recommendations! They come from 163 libraries in 43 different countries. The authors themselves represent 46 different nationalities and 41 of the titles are in translation. Lots of Canadians on the list too!
It's particularly great to see Steven Galloway's The Cellist of Sarajevo nominated so many times - not just from Canadian libraries, but from England and Finland as well.

You can see the full list of nominees and the libraries who nominated them here.
