Longlist International Booker Prize 2021

Amazing news! Summer Brother is selected for the longlist of the International Booker Prize 2021! It feels like someone surprised me with a completely unexpected birthday. And gave me a fantastic storm as a present!

‘A deeply humane novel centred on a disabled man, his heroic younger brother and an unreliable, partly criminal father living on an all but derelict site. The book is generous to all its flawed characters, is beautifully written and humanises lives of abject poverty on the edge of squalor and disaster.’ – Jury of the International Booker Prize 2021

Summer Brother is published by World Editions and translated by David Doherty. The book was planned for May, but will be available in the bookstores at the 8th of April.
