Orange Prize long list

...has been announced.
I suck at predictions but between the three favourites, Stef Penney, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Kiran Desai, I'm going with Adichie. Has there been even one review of her second book that wasn't effusive?
Desai and Penney have already won the major awards.
How cool would it be for Lisa Moore to win, though?
This was a fine piece of work, published in 2005, but the British edition is fairly recent.

Shortlist on Apr 17, winner on June 6.
