    Thanks for a'm great video. Was not even aware of this prize. Guess I'm still further behind than 2018. Need some catching up. Several books I'd be most interested in reading.

    Always good to hear about prizes for translated books Peg. I’ve seen Winter in Sokcho on booktube a lot but hadn’t even heard of Planet of Clay which is something I like about prizes- being introduced to new books and authors. I’ve just realized I’ve read one on the list Twilight Zone by Nona Fernandez and loved it! Always good to see you!

    I covet your hardback of When We Cease to Understand the World. I can only find the paperback. Anyway, I’m anxious to read this one!

    I didn't know NBA were doing a translated category now, how exciting! I just looked and saw that Stephen Snyder is on the judging panel. He translates Yoko Ogawa's books and she's one of my favourite writers 😍

    I want to read "Winter in Sokcho", ordered this yesterday from England to Sweden. But as you say, it is impossible to read all the books before the shortlists arrive on OCT 5.
