The 2020 Women’s Prize for Fiction Longlist

Well this was quite a surprise! I guessed 3 titles (i’ve done much better in the past) and I’ve read only 3 of the books! Anyway here’s the longlist :

Deepa Anappara – Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line
Taffy Brodesser-Akner – Fleishman Is in Trouble
Candice Carty-Williams – Queenie
Angie Cruz – Dominicana
Anne Enright – Actress
Bernardine Evaristo – Girl, Woman, Other
Luan Goldie – Nightingale Point
Natalie Haynes – A Thousand Ships
Jing-Jing Lee – How We Disappeared
Claire Lombardo – The Most Fun We Ever Had
Hilary Mantel – The Mirror and the Light
Edna O’Brien – Girl
Maggie O’Farrell – Hamnet
Jenny Offill – Weather
Ann Patchett – The Dutch House
Jacqueline Woodson – Red at the Bone

Djinn Patrol is on the way, I bought Girl and Queenie is on the TBR stack and I’m waiting for The Dutch House to come out in cheapo paperback. As diminishing my TBR stack is a priority, I’ll probably wait until the shortlist announcement (but knowing me I’ll buy a couple of titles here and there).

Many thanks to The Women’s Prize for Fiction group for letting me use their logo.
