imageThe 2016 longlist was announced this week.  There are 11 titles translated from German on this year’s list, and 9 have been reviewed, at one time or another by this year’s #germanlitmonth participants – proving what a well-read, clued-up bunch we are. 🙂

Question: When the 160 strong longlist is whittled down to the 10 title shortlist do you think any of these will make the cut?
