Westwood Creative Artists is thrilled to announce that Rohinton Mistry has been shortlisted for the Man International Booker Prize. The prize is awarded every two years and echos and reinforces the annual Man Booker Prize for Fiction in that literary excellence is its sole focus. The Man Booker International Prize is significantly different from the annual Man Booker Prize for Fiction in that it highlights one writer’s overall contribution to fiction on the world stage. In seeking out literary excellence the judges consider a writer’s body of work rather than a single novel. The Man Booker International Prize winner will be announced at the Sydney Writers’ Festival on 18 May and the winner will be celebrated at an awards ceremony in London on 28 June 2011.
