Three Irish novelists have made the 13-strong longlist for this year’s £50,000 Man Booker Prize. Donal Ryan is nominated for From a Low and Quiet Sea, Sally Rooney for Normal People and and Anna Burns for Milkman.

This puts Ireland on a par with the US, which also has three writers on the list: Nick Drnaso for Sabrina, Rachel Kushner for The Man’s Room and Richard Powers for The Overstory.
