The longlist for the Booker Prize for Fiction was announced this week. First awarded in 1969, it is open to writers of any nationality, writing in English and published in the UK or Ireland. This year's list was chosen from 151 novels published in the UK or Ireland between October 1st, 2018 and September 30th, 2019.

Originally, only writers from the British Commonwealth were eligible for the prize--but in 2014 it was opened up to all writers in the English language (who are published in the UK or Ireland). Notable this year: there is only one author from the United States on the longlist.

The shortlist of six books will be announced on Tuesday, September 3rd. The shortlisted authors each receive £2,500 and a specially bound edition of their book.

The 2019 winner will be announced on Monday, October 14th at an awards ceremony in London.  The winner of the 2019 Booker Prize receives £50,000.
