On 12th April, the Man Booker International Prize announced its annual shortlist.
I haven’t read any of these yet but will be buying Han Kang’s new book. I loved The Vegetarian which she won the International Prize for last year.
Here are the 6 books to look out for:
- Vernon Subutex 1 – Virginie Despentes (France)
- The White Book – Han Kang (South Korea)
- The World Goes On – László Krasznahorkai (Hungary)
- Like a Fading Shadow – Antonio Muñoz Molina (Spain)
- Frankenstein in Baghdad – Ahmed Saadawi (Iraq)
- Flights – Olga Tokarczuk (Poland)
