Read our review of The Vegetarian, International Man Booker Prize winner 2016

We are thrilled that South Korean Han Kang’s The Vegetarian, translated by Deborah Smith, has won the International Man Booker Prize 2016. It’s a truly original and wonderfully weird story of a young woman’s break down. Read our review here to see if this is for you.

The £50,000 prize is shared between the author and the 28 year old translator Deborah Smith who taught herself Korean only three years before. Extraordinary!!
