The Man Booker International 2018 Longlist.


A few minutes ago the Man Booker International Longlist has been announced. This prize focuses on translated fiction. Here’s the Longlist.

Laurent Binet, Sam Taylor, The 7th Function of Language

Javier Cercas, Frank Wynne, The Impostor

Virginie Despentes, Frank Wynne, Vernon Subutex 1

Jenny Erpenbeck, Susan Bernofsky, Go, Went, Gone

Han Kang, Deborah Smith, The White Book

Ariana Harwicz, Sarah Moses & Carolina Orloff, Die, My Love

László Krasznahorkai, John Batki, Ottilie Mulzet & George Szirtes, The World Goes On

Antonio Muñoz Molina, Camilo A. Ramirez, Like a Fading Shadow

Christoph Ransmayr, Simon Pare, The Flying Mountain

Ahmed Saadawi, Jonathan Wright, Frankenstein in Baghdad

Olga Tokarczuk, Jennifer Croft, Flights

Wu Ming-Yi, Darryl Sterk, The Stolen Bicycle

Gabriela Ybarra, Natasha Wimmer, The Dinner Guest

Out of  the 13 mention, I have read one. It is highlighted. I DNF’s the Binet as I felt that it too similar to Eco’s books, and yes I know Eco makes a guest appearance in the Binet book.

Die My Love is on the TBR stack.

As for the others, I am very curious about all of them, especially the Han Kang and Virginie Despentes but I’ll have to hold back and wait until the shortlist is announced. I will definitely read the winner.
