Miles Franklin Award – longlist 2012

I love hearing who are the contenders for particular literary awards – partly to check out what I’ve read and partly to see what I should read.

The longlist for the Miles Franklin Award 2012 was announced this morning. I’m gunning for Charlotte Wood’s Animal People, a book I thoroughly enjoyed.

And I’ve moved Elliot Perlman’s The Street Sweeper and Alex Miller’s Autumn Laing up my reading list.
