For 48 years the Man Booker Prize and its judges have been discerningly selecting what they deem as the best fiction writing. The aim is to promote sales and to promote reading of intelligent works.
Launched in 2005, the Man Booker International Prize is awarded every two years to a living author who has published fiction either originally in English or whose work is generally available in translation in the English language. The winner is chosen solely at the discretion of the judging panel and there are no submissions from publishers.
The Man Booker International Prize 2015 winner will be revealed Tuesday 19 May 2015. See a list of the finalists here. I haven't read these authors - yet. Have you? Please do share and let us know your thoughts.
