Man Asian Literary Prize 2008 Longlist

This is the longlist for the Man Asian Literary Prize 2008 ie. the best unpublished Asian novel for the written year. The rules state that Asian actually means the residency and citizenship of the author and not the setting of the novel manuscript itself.
Writers from the Indian sub-continent so easily rule the list followed by 4 nominations from the Phillippines.
