Max Porter on publishing The Vegetarian: 'Everyone agreed that this was an important book'
Max Porter explains the process behind the publication of The Vegetarian by Han Kang, and why it was essential that it reached new readers
In 2016, The Vegetarian won the International Booker Prize, the first time the award was given to a single book
Upon its win, the International Booker Prize judges said it was a book that had an ‘uncanny blend of beauty and horror at every turn’ and that it ‘will linger long in the minds, and maybe the dreams, of its readers’.
