Man Booker International 2011 finalists

Post by annis » Tue April 5th, 2011, 3:37 am

The 13 finalists have just been announced for the 2011 Man Booker International Prize (not to be confused with the Man Booker Prize for which only for UK, Irish and Commonwealth authors are eligible).

In an unusual move, nominee John Le Carre has asked to be taken off the list!

Wow, ballsy move. I wonder why he "doesn't compete for literary prizes"?
