International IMPAC Dublin Award Longlist Announced. . .
here. The shortlist comes out on April 12th, 2011 with the winner announced on June 15th.It's one of the longest longlists and the winner won't be announced until next June, but the full list of 162 nominees has just been posted. They come from libraries in 126 cities, in 43 different countries. 42 of the titles are books in translation from 14 languages. 35 of the titles are first novels. I always like to see which books are nominated by the Canadian libraries - Linden MacIntryre's Bishop's Man and Annabel Lyon's The Golden Mean were two titles that received multiple nominations. You can see the full list of nominations by each library
