Kevin Barry long-listed for the Booker Prize 2019

Kevin Barry’s Night Boat to Tangier has been long-listed for the newly-minted Booker Prize 2019. Barry joins a stellar cast of contenders including Margaret Atwood, Deborah Levy, Salman Rushdie, Max Porter and John Lancaster on the list and will be battling to keep arguably one of the world’s most prestigious literary awards on the island of Ireland.
