The Green Carnation Longlist

On Tuesday evening, 31st August, the four judges of the Green Carnation Prize, (l to r) Simon Savidge, Lesley Cookman, Paul Magrs and Nick Campbell, met for dinner in Bloomsbury and decided, amid much wine and laughter, and a few differences of opinion, on the all important longlist. Here it is:

  • Generation A by Douglas Coupland (Windmill Books)
  • Bryant and May Off the Rails by Christopher Fowler (Doubleday)
  • Paperboy by Christopher Fowler (Doubleday)
  • In A Strange Room by Damon Galgut (Atlantic Books)
  • God Says No by James Hannaham (McSweeney’s)
  • London Triptych by Jonathan Kemp (Myriad Editions)
  • Mary Ann in Autumn by Armistead Maupin (Doubleday)
  • Children of the Sun by Max Schaefer (Granta)
  • Man’s World by Rupert Smith (Arcadia Books)
  • The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas (Tuskar Rock Press)
  • City Boy by Edmund White (Bloomsbury)
Congratulations to all the authors - and the publishers - and I wish you could all end up on the short list, which will be announced on November 1st.
