The prize is awarded annually for the finest single work of fiction from around the world which has been translated into English.

The judges said of TIME SHELTER:

A wide-ranging, thought-provoking, macabre and humorous novel about nationality, identity and ageing, and about the healing and destructive power of memory. It asks the question: what is our place in 20th century history, when that history seems to be constantly shifting? ‘Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be,’ they say, and this book shows us – in moving, funny and disturbing ways – how and why.

The longlist of 13 books was announced today. The shortlist will be announced on March 14th.
