IMPAC Dublin Award

So the long list for the IMPAC/Dublin literary award was released yesterday, and no, I’m not going to list all 153 titles. But my local public library made three good selections: Sebastian Barry’s The Secret Scripture, Amitav Ghosh’s Sea of Poppies, and Richard Price’s Lush Life.

The list by nominating library is pretty interesting too — like the St. John’s Library in Newfoundland nominating Blackstrap Hawco: said to be about a Newfoundland family. No parochialism there.
