The finalists for the 2013 Man Booker International Prize has been been announced.  Of the ten writers announced, Marie NDiaye, of French and Senegalese parentage, is one of them.

The Man Booker International Prize is awarded for the consideration of a body of work, not just a particular book. The winner of the £60,000 prize will be announced on 22 May in London.

It is worth knowing that Marie NDiaye is the most youthful Man Booker International finalist to date. She is 45.

NDiaye’s novel, Trois Femmes Puissantes which won the Prix Goncourt in 2009 has now been released in English as Three Strong Women.
