The 2023 International Booker Longlist

Posted March 15, 2023 by Michael @ Knowledge Lost in Literary Prizes / 4 Comments

The International Booker Prize is my favourite literary prize I like to follow. Every year I am excited to see the longlist and hope to be able to read it in its entirety. As I am in Australia, this is always a difficult task. When the longlist drops, I often scramble to see if my library has the books to reserve and every year I hope that I have read a large portion of the list to make things easier. This year is going to be a challenge, I do not own any of these books. I know I will not complete the entire longlist before the winner is announced, I create this post to make it easier for me to track my progress.
