This year's Booker Prize longlist will be announced at 1500 BST (1000 EDT in the United States) tomorrow. So far I've read two books that qualify for the longlist, The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois by Honorée Fanonne Jeffers, and The Trees by Percival Everett, which were both outstanding, and one that might qualify, Afterlives by Abdulrazak Gurnah, last year's winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, which is also worthy of consideration, IMO. I own but haven't yet read The Sentence by Louise Erdrich, so I would be pleased if it and the three books I've finished were chosen.

Which books do you think merit consideration, whether you've read them or not?
