At The Reading Agency, we love discovering exciting new reads from around the world; books can transport us to new places, introduce us to interesting people and different cultures. For many of us, reading books in translation is our way to find these stories, and our first place to go to choose our next read is the International Booker Prize.
The International Booker Prize honours the finest fiction in translation from around the world, and both author and translator are equally rewarded. This year’s longlist and shortlist are full of fascinating books, featuring books translated from languages including Spanish, Danish and Russian.
Are you reading, or planning to read, any of the books that have been chosen by the judges for this year’s longlist or shortlist? We’d love to hear from you!
Tell us about your reading, where you get your recommendations from and what you think in this short survey. We want to hear from everyone, whether you’ve read one book or all of them!
