_Man-Booker_Intl_225.pngOn Tuesday, judges announced the finalists for the Man Booker International Prize recognizing a single work of fiction translated into English and published in the United Kingdom or Ireland. The six books—selected from a list of 108 written across 25 languages—is notable for featuring six women writers and five women translators, including Polish author Olga Tokarczuk, who could win for a second consecutive year for her novel, Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead. The winner of the £50,000 award—to be divided equally between author and translator—will be announced May 21 at a ceremony in London. The International Prize is a separate distinction from the Booker Prize; you can learn more here.
