The Miles Franklin longlist has finally been announced and I am ecstatic that there are two books that I would love to see win. Flames by Robbie Arnott is such a wonderful unique and original book, while Boy Swallows Universe has been one of my favourite reads for the year. There are some expected appearances like Too Much Lip by Melissa Lucashenko and there are some books that I have never even heard of.

Here is the complete list -

The Lebs by Michael Mohammed Ahmad

Flames by Robbie Arnott

Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton

A Sand Archive by Gregory Day

Inappropriation by Lexi Freiman

A Stolen Season by Rodney Hall

Too Much Lip by Melissa Lucashenko

Dyschronia by Jennifer Mills

The Lucky Galah by Tracy Sorensen
