    The longlist for the 2020 International DUBLIN Literary Award was announced today, and it is indeed long—156 books long, to be precise. The prize is sponsored by the Dublin City Council, and the longlist is comprised of nominations from public libraries around the world. Last year’s winner, Emily Ruskovich’s Idaho, was nominated by a single library in Bruges.

    The winner of the award—”the world’s most valuable annual prize for a single work of fiction published in English”—will receive a not-too-shabby €100,000 (if the winner is a translated book, the prize is split 75-25 between the author and translator).

    You can see the full (long) longlist here.
