The Man Asian Literary Prize is gaining in stature around the world, and so a team of keen readers of Asian books in translation has been formed to bring you reviews of all the longlisted titles.
The longlist was announced last week and the shortlist will be revealed in January. The winner will be announced in March.
The winning author is awarded USD 30,000 and the translator (if any) USD 5,000.
Our Shadow Man Asian Literary Prize 2011 blogging team consists of
- Lisa Hill from ANZ LitLovers (Australia)
- Fay from Read, Ramble ((US)
- Matt from A Novel Approach (Australia)
- Stu from Winston’s Dad (UK) and
- Sue from Whispering Gums (Australia)
Reviews to the shortlisted titles will soon be appearing on these blogs, and each blogger will post to advise you of the latest reviews on the other blogs.
If possible, we will try to select a shadow winner but given that there are availability issues with at least one of the titles, this may not be possible.
We are indebted to Kevin from Canada for the concept of a Shadow Jury.
