Miles Franklin Literary Award 2007 - Longlist announced

The 2007 Miles Franklin Literary Award longlist has been announced and out of 55 books submitted, the following eight made the cut.
  • Beyond the Break by Sandra Hall
  • Careless by Deborah Robertson
  • Carpentaria by Alexis Wright
  • Dreams of Speaking by Gail Johnes
  • Silent Parts by John Charalambous
  • Theft: A Love Story by Peter Carey
  • The Unexpected Elements of Love by Kate Legge
  • The Unknown Terrorist by Richard Flanagan

The only one I am familiar with is Peter Carey's Theft: A Love Story. Should probably read it now, I guess. Check out the list of past winners here. Read more about the Award here.
