The International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award 2013: Putting the Long in Longlist

11 March 2013 — Leave a comment

The shortlist for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award for 2013 is due to be announced on the 9th of April. The longlist for the prize was announced quite some time ago – on the 12th of November in fact – presumably in order to give readers some chance of making an indent into the rather extraordinary 154 book longlist before the second announcement is made.

The winner of the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award will receive €100,000 prize, making it the world’s most valuable annual literary prize for a single work of fiction published in English. In order to be eligible for the 2013 prize, books needed to be published between 1 January 2011 and 31 December 2011.

The prize is organised by Dublin City Public Libraries and nominations are drawn from libraries in 120 cities around the world. The 2013 longlist features books from 44 countries, originally published in 19 different languages.
