Julian Barnes for Arthur and George (Jonathan Cape)
Sebastian Barry for A Long Way Home (Viking)
J. M. Coetzee for Slow Man (Viking)
Jonathan Safran Foer for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Houghton Mifflin)
Peter Hobbs for The Short Day Dying (Faber and Faber)
Cormac McCarthy for No Country for Old Men (Knopf)
Per Peterrson for Out Stealing Horses (Harvill Secker), translated by Anne Born
Salman Rushdie for Shalimar the Clown (Random House)

The judges are Hanan Al-Shaykh, Carmen Callil, Gerald Dawe, Almeida Faria, Lilian Faschinger, and Eugene Sullivan. The winner will be announced on June 14.

Last year's winner was Irish novelist Colm Tóibín for The Master (Picador, 2004).
