I told you they were good!

Extremely pleasing to see Donal Ryan's The Spinning Heart and NoViolet Bulawayo's We Need New Names on the Man Booker longlist just announced as I have raved about them both here and in the magazine.

Fingers crossed they make it to the shortlist - and on for one of them to win!

Thanks to getting Donal Ryan's book from yourself and loving it so much I know of three copies bought on the back of my raving about it too! (Also highly recommend Colm Toibin's, "The Testament of Mary" - the writing is exquisite.)
Have to admit that this is the most accessible-looking Booker shortlist I've seen - what a refreshing change.
