The fact that I've never before heard of this award probably indicates a level of ignorance to which I should never admit, but the fact remains I'd never heard of the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award until about five minutes ago.
Anyway, I clicked on the link to see the longlist of nominees. I figured it was worth sharing because I've really loved the books I've read on this list. I figure the rest are equally splendid.
Also, the best thing about longlists is that they are really long. What a great way to find some book suggestions.
