Independent Foreign Fiction Prize judges named

13th January 2011

The judging panel for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize 2011 has been confirmed by reading charity Booktrust.

Writer, academic and broadcaster Harriett Gilbert, author M.J. Hyland and novelist Neel Mukherjee have been included on the five-strong panel.

The judges of the GBP 10,000 prize are completed by Catriona Kelly, professor of Russian at the University of Oxford, and Independent literary editor Boyd Tonkin.

Tonkin commented: 'This year's judges bring an extraordinary wealth of talent, experience and expertise to an award that has … established itself as a unique highlight of Britain's literary calendar.'

Booktrust also confirmed key dates for the award, noting that its longlist will be published on March 10th, its shortlist will be announced on April 11th at the London Book Fair and the winner will be named on May 26th.

Last year, the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize was won by French writer Philippe Claudel with Brodeck's Report, which was lauded by Tonkin as a 'beautiful, sinister and haunting fable of persecution, resistance and survival'.

Past winners include W.G. Sebald, Per Petterson and Milan Kundera.
