March - the Man Asian Literary Prize shortlist, of course!
With just about two weeks to go before the winner of the Man Asian Literary Prize is selected, I have some time to at least make a good start toward finishing the list. I believe I have five books left, so I may be able to get them done in time, but if not, well, that's okay too.
Here's the list (* means I've read it):
River of Smoke, by Amithav Ghosh
The Lake, by Banana Yoshimoto
The Wandering Falcon, by Jamil Ahmad
Rebirth, by Jahnavi Barua ( I had to buy this one in India, of all places!)
Please Look After Mom, by Kyung-soon Shin
The Sly Company of People Who Care, by Rahul Bhattacharya *
Dream of Ding Village, by Yan Lianke*
If there's time, I want to get to a few of the books on the BTBA longlist as well.
This should be a month of pure reading pleasure. I'm looking forward to it.
