THE 2016 MAN BOOKER PRIZE LONGLIST ANNOUNCED

The Man Booker International Prize has revealed this morning the longlist for the 2016 Prize, which celebrates the finest in global fiction translated to English. 

This year's list includes banned books, such as the Chinese Yan Lianke's political novel, the mysterious pseudonymous author Elena Ferrante, or the Nobel-Prize winners Orhan Pamuk and Kenzaburo Oe.

The 13-book longlist consists of authors from 12 nationalities and highlights the diversity of today's best fiction. "This list showcases fiction that crosses every border. It also pays tribute to the skill and dedication of the first-rate translators who convey it to English-language readers", commented Boyd Tonkin, chair of 2016 Booker Prize. 

This is the first longlist ever to have been announced for the Man Booker International Prize, which has joined forces with the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize and is now awarded annually on the basis of a single book. The £50,000 prize will be divided equally between the author of the winning book and its translator. The judges considered 155 books.

The full longlist goes as follows:
