Independent Foreign Fiction Prize 2012 (Shadow Jury combined reviews)

This is the 2012 Independent Foreign Fiction Prize  Longlist, with links to reviews by the Shadow prize jury.  Books which made the official shortlist are in bold, (see judges comments here) and those which made the Shadow shortlist are in italics.



  1. many thanks lisa for posting this ,all the best stu


    • *chuckle* I’m trying to keep up with it all!


  2. I love them all! (Oh for the time to read them!)

    I do have one correction – Diego Marani did not write New Finnish Grammar in Finnish – Diego Marani is Italian. Finnish is a chunk of the subject matter. Of all the books listed that’s the one I really want to read.

    Thanks for the list, Lisa! I’ve only read 2 so far. I might make it a personal challenge to read the world this year – this list!


    • HI Bec, thanks for the correction, I can’t remember where I got the original list from, but I’ve checked the IFFP website and you are right. (And I’ve fixed it).
