Orange Prize longlist announced

Two Canadian novels are in the running for the Orange Prize.  The “longlist,” announced yesterday, includes Nancy Huston’s Fault Lines and Heather O’Neill’s Lullabies for Little Criminals.

Looking over the list of past winners, I see that Canadian novels have won the prize twice in its twelve-year history: Fugitive Pieces won in 1997, and Larry’s Party won in 1998.
