Miles Franklin Literary Award Longlist 2022

The longlist for the 2022 Miles Franklin Literary Award, worth $60,000, has been announced.

The 12 longlisted novels are:

‘This year’s longlist, drawn from a robust pool of entries, reflects the thematic richness and the formal adventurousness of the contemporary Australian novel, as our writers respond to our times. Diverse in every sense, it extends from works of realism to novels in a more experimental vein, proving that the nation’s story-tellers are continuing to test the boundaries of what the novel can do,’ said State Library of NSW Mitchell Librarian Richard Neville, who is judging the 2022 award alongside critics Bernadette Brennan and James Ley, scholar Mridula Nath Chakraborty, and writer and editor Elfie Shiosaki.

The shortlisted novels will be announced on 23 June, with the winner to be revealed on 20 July.

Both Daytime and Evening Pageturners groups will discuss the longlisted books (select one longlisted book to read) on Wednesday 13 July and try to pick the winner. Good luck!
