Man Booker International

Repost link from

Man Booker International Prize 2013.

I have followed The Man Booker Prize for years but not the Man Booker International Prize. This year I’m familiar with two judges Yiyun Li and Tim Parks so I paid attention to the prize. I have not heard of any of the nominees except for one—Marilynne Robinson, so this is new territory for me. The Man Booker International Prize is significantly different from the annual Man Booker Prize for Fiction. In seeking out literary excellence, the judges consider a writer’s body of work rather than a single novel.
