Booker Prize longlist is out

Or, indeed, the Man Booker Prize longlist as we now have to call it. It looks…well, like a Booker Prize longlist (Peter Carey, Nadine Gordimer, Howard Jacobson, Claire Messud, David Mitchell, and 14 others.) Nothing (so far as I know) generic on there, but that’s only having read a couple of them: can anyone correct me on that?

    Gideon Mack has the devil in it, you could read it as fantasy and there are certainly elements of the fantastic in there, but I wouldn’t call it a genre work as such.

    ‘generic’ meaning ‘of the genre’ seems somehow incredibly wrong to me.
