Shin Kyung-sook ALSO listed for The Independent Foreign Fiction Prize

KTLIT LogoHot on the heels of Shin Kyung-sook’s victory in the Man Asia Literary Prize, The Independent announced today that her Please Look After Mom has been long-listed for the  Independent Foreign Fiction Prize. The Independent describes the award:

The ‘Independent’ Foreign Fiction Prize remains not just Britain’s premier honour for modern writing in translation: with its £10,000 pot equally – and uniquely – divided between author and translator. It has, over the dozen years since its re-foundation with generous support from Arts Council England and Champagne Taittinger, become the contest of first resort for many readers here and abroad who wish to take the temperature of global fiction.
