The Man Booker International Prize shortlist 2019

Congratulations to the authors, translators and publishers shortlisted for this year’s Man Booker International Prize.

Here is the shortlist in full:

Bettany Hughes, chair of the 2019 Man Booker International Prize judging panel, said: ‘Wisdom in all its forms is here. Unexpected and unpredictable narratives compelled us to choose this vigorous shortlist. Subversive and intellectually ambitious with welcome flashes of wit, each book nourishes creative conversation. We were struck by the lucidity and supple strength of all the translations.’

The Man Booker International Prize is awarded every year for a single book, which is translated into English and published in the UK. The work of translators is equally rewarded, with the £50,000 prize divided between the author and the translator of the winning entry. In addition, each shortlisted author and translator will receive £1,000.

The winner of the 2019 Man Booker International Prize will be announced on 21 May. Find out more about the prize, and this year’s shortlisted titles, here.
