The prizes celebrate outstanding fiction, whether originally written in English or translated into English, bringing recognition and readership to gifted authors from around the globe.
For over 50 years the prizes have identified future classics. Some of those books have won, others have been longlisted or shortlisted: all of them have earned a place in the Booker Library and in readers’ lives.
