Booker Prize Longlist

The international Booker Prize longlist was announced today, and four of our titles made the cut. It’s a very nice showing from a few of our publishers. Last year we ended up with three on the shortlist, but sadly no win. Maybe this year? Our office team predicts it’s gotta be the year for a New Directions win! Shortlist will be announced late April. Here are the PGC titles on the list, coming from Raincoast:

Summer Brother by Jaap Robben, translated from Dutch by David Doherty (World Editions, 9781642860702, FEB 21)

An Inventory Of Losses by Judith Schalansky, translated from German by Jackie Smith, Quercus, (New Directions, 9780811229630, DEC 20)
