Man Asian Literary Prize Shorlist Announced

The Man Asian Literary Prize shortlist has been announced, and it includes no surprises since all of the books included in it have received favorable reviews in the western press, with the exception, I think, of Hiromi Kawakami's The Briefcase

As of next year the Prize will seize to exist under its current name and the organizing committee is on the lookout for some new sponsors, which I guess won't be so hard to come by. Here's this year's list:

Between Clay and Dust by Musharraf Ali Farooqi

The Briefcase by Hiromi Kawakami

Silent House by Orhan Pamuk

The Garden of Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng

Narcopolis by Jeet Thayil
