LONDON (AP) — Novels by Americans Anne Tyler and Marilynne Robinson are among 13 contenders for the 50,000-pound ($78,000) Booker Prize for fiction.

The list, chosen from 156 entries and announced Wednesday, includes "A Brief History of Seven Killings" by Marlon James, the first Jamaica-born Booker contender.

Also selected are Ireland's Anne Enright for "The Green Road" and British writer Andrew O'Hagan's "The Illuminations."

Two years ago, writers of all nationalities became eligible for the Booker, previously open only to British, Irish and Commonwealth authors.

Five American novels are on the list: Tyler's "A Spool of Blue Thread," Robinson's "Lila," Bill Clegg's "Did You Ever Have a Family," Laila Lalami's "The Moor's Account" and Hanya Yanagihara's "A Little Life."

Six finalists will be announced Sept. 15 and the winner revealed Oct. 13.
