Man Booker International 2017
Friday, March 17th 2017
The longlisted titles for the Man Booker International Prize were announced this week! Prior to 2016, the prize was open only to UK authors, but the addition of the Man Booker International Prize now helps highlight the works of superb authors and translators from around the world.
Today, the Man Booker International Prize will be awarded annually for a single book, translated into English and published in the UK. The £50,000 prize, awarded in June, is divided equally between the winning author and the English translator. This year's longlisted titles are below.
Several titles are not currently availble, including:
The Unseen by Roy Jacobsen, trans. by Don Bartlett & Don Shaw
The Traitor's Niche by Ismail Kadare, trans. by John Hodgson
Fish Have No Feet by Jon Kalman Stefansson, trans. by Phil Roughton
Black Moses by Alain Mabanckou (France), trans. by Helen Stevenson
Mirror, Shoulder, Signal by Dorthe Nors (Denmark), trans. by Misha Hoekstra
