Booker Long List Announced

Posted by Alison Hallett on Wed, Jul 29, 2009 at 2:48 PM

The long list for the Man Booker Awards was announced yesterday. Many of the books haven't gotten stateside release yet, but one that has is Me Cheeta: My Life in Hollywood, which purports to be the memoir of the chimpanzee from Tarzan. It'd be funny if a monkey beat Coetzee. (Ape. Whatever.) Full list of nominees after the jump.
