The Discomfort of Evening from Marieke Lucas Rijneveld on 2020 International Booker Prize Shortlist

The International Booker Prize is awarded annually for a single book, translated into English and published in the UK or Ireland.

The vital work of translators is celebrated, with the prize money divided equally between the author and translator.

The judges of the 2020 International Booker Prize have revealed the six shortlisted books of the International Booker Prize which celebrates the finest translated fiction from around the world.

The 2020 International Booker Prize shortlist is as follows:

◊ The Enlightenment of the Greengage Tree by Shokoofeh Azar (Farsi-Iran), translated by Anonymous, published by Europa Editions

◊ The Adventures of China Iron by Gabriela Cabezón Cámara (Spanish-Argentina), translated by Iona Macintyre and Fiona Mackintosh, published by Charco Press

◊ Tyll by Daniel Kehlmann (Germany-German), translated by Ross Benjamin, published by Quercus

◊ Hurricane Season by Fernanda Melchor (Spanish-Mexico), translated by Sophie Hughes, Published by Fitzcarraldo Editions

◊ The Memory Police by Yoko Ogawa (Japanese-Japan), translated by Stephen Snyder, published by Harvill Secker

◊ The Discomfort of Evening by Marieke Lucas Rijneveld (Dutch-Netherlands), translated by Michele Hutchison, published by Faber & Faber

The shortlist was chosen by a panel of five judges, chaired by Ted Hodgkinson, Head of Literature and Spoken Word at Southbank Centre. The panel also includes: Lucie Campos, director of the Villa Gillet, France’s centre for international writing; Man Booker International Prize-winning translator and writer Jennifer Croft; Booker Prize longlisted author Valeria Luiselli and writer, poet and musician Jeet Thayil, whose novel Narcopolis was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2012.

◊ The Winner will be announced on 19 may 2020
