Kyung-sook Shin wins the Man Asian Literary Prize

This year's winner of the Man Asian Literary Prize is Kyung-sook Shin for her book Please Look After Mom. Her win signals two firsts:  one, it's the first time win for a South Korean writer, and two, her novel is the first book from South Korea to make it onto the MAL shortlist.  You can read all about it here.  Congratulations to Kyung-sook Shin on her win.


  1. I was amazed by this book and am glad it won the prize!

  2. I haven't read it yet, and actually I looked for it this morning and couldn't find it. I know it's here somewhere!


Say what you will, but at least try to be nice about it.
