The 2019 Man Booker International Longlist

The longlist for the 2019 Man Booker International Prize was released today, and there are some great titles to add to your TBR. Before we get into those books though, I want to point out a few cool things about this year’s list.

First, only two of these novels are from large conglomerate publishing houses; the rest are from independent publishers. I love supporting small publishers and their authors, so I was thrilled to see them represented in the longlist.

Second, over half of the list is made up of female authors – eight in total. It really seems as though women writers are getting equal footing in world literature, so it made me happy to see that they make up the bulk of this list.

Now, let’s get right into the books!
