Does Jhumpa Lahiri even go to this school?

Lahiri joins Colum McCann, Ruth Ozeki and Colm Tóibín on the longlist for England's Man Booker Prize, announced yesterday. Of course Lahiri's new novel THE LOWLAND isn't out in the U.S. until September, even though she lives here, so all we can do is twiddle our thumbs and catch up on the other books. Full longlist: 

"Five Star Billionaire" by Tash Aw       
"We Need New Names" by NoViolet Bulawayo   
"The Luminaries" by Eleanor Catton   
"Harvest" by Jim Crace  
"The Marrying of Chani Kaufman" by Eve Harris  
"The Kill" by Richard House
"The Lowland" by Jhumpa Lahiri  
"Unexploded" by Alison MacLeod
"TransAtlantic" by Colum McCann  
"Almost English" by Charlotte Mendelson 
"A Tale for the Time Being" by Ruth Ozeki  
"The Spinning Heart" by Donal Ryan 
"The Testament of Mary" by Colm Tóibín
