International DUBLIN Literary Award

The International DUBLIN Literary Award is yet another of the international literary prizes I include on the Prizes-page here, since it considers a great deal of international fiction, both originally written in English as well as in translation.

They’ve announced this year’s winner, and it is Family Life, by Akhil Sharma, which has been out for a while already.(it was one of The New York Times Book Review‘s The 10 Best Books of 2014).

Beyond the winner, I like the fact that they publish a huge list of all the nominated titles, which does offer an interesting overview of much recent international fiction available in English.

For the Sharma, see also the W.W.Norton publicity page, and get your copy at or
