Do Not Say We Have Nothing is also on the long list for the Man Booker Prize so I put a hold on it at my library some time ago. Other than that and the David Bergen novel (couldn't find a touchstone either), because he is a Manitoban, I haven't heard anything about the rest.

I've been eyeing 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl all summer as I think it might work for my book club. I've also heard a lot of hype about By Gaslight in the last week or so. It sounds too Sherlock Holmes for my tastes.

I was already on the library list for Emma Donoghue's Wonder but it isn't released yet.
