Kenzaburo Oe on 2010 Man Asian Literary Prize longlist

14th December 2010

The ten writers on the longlist for the 2010 Man Asian Literary Prize have been named and include Nobel Prize for literature laureate Kenzaburo Oe.

Japanese author Oe has been nominated for the USD 30,000 (GBP 18,900) prize with The Changeling. He is joined on the longlist by Manu Joseph with Serious Men, Bi Feiyu for Three Sisters and Upamanyu Chatterjee with Way to Go.

Dahanu Road by Anosh Irani, Tabish Khair's The Thing About Thugs and Tiger Hills by Sarita Mandanna are also in the running for the accolade, the winner of which will be announced on March 17th next year.

The longlist is completed by Yoko Ogawa's Hotel Iris, Monkey-man by Usha K.R. and Criselda Yabes' Below the Crying Mountain.

Monica Ali, chair of the judging panel, commented: 'The judges have encountered the best of new fiction from across the region, from India to China, from the Philippines to Japan, and the longlist reflects this diversity.'

Last year, the Man Asian Literary Prize was taken by Chinese author Su Tong for The Boat to Redemption, which was described as a 'picaresque novel of immense charm' by the judging panel.
