The Man Booker longlist was announced yesterday. It’s a strong field, mixing Booker regulars like Colm Toibin (Brooklyn), Sarah Waters (The Little Stranger) and Hilary Mantel (Wolf Hall) with relative newcomers like James Scudamore, whose second novel Heliopolis makes the list. Perhaps the most surprising inclusion is Me Cheeta, the autobiography of the Tarzan star, now almost 80 and living in retirement in Hollywood. Ghosted — chimped? — by James Lever.
