por Carlos Pereira \foleirices, em 13.03.19

Já é conhecida a longa lista de finalistas ao Prémio Literário Man Booker International 2019.

A curta lista é revelada a 9 de Abril, e no dia 21 de Maio é anunciado o nome dos vencedores - Autor e Tradutor.

 

Esta primeira lista é composta por 13 romances escolhidos pelo júri do Prémio que é presidido por Bettany Hughes.

Importa referir que é a última vez que este prémio literário terá a denominação de Man Booker, pois o grupo Man deixa de patrocinar este Prémio Literário.

A Fundação Crankstart tomará o seu lugar.

Bettany Hughes, chair of the 2019 Man Booker International Prize judging panel, said:

 

‘This was a year when writers plundered the archive, personal and political. That drive is represented in our longlist, but so too are surreal Chinese train journeys, absurdist approaches to war and suicide, and the traumas of spirit and flesh. We’re thrilled to share 13 books which enrich our idea of what fiction can do.’
