Fans of global literature celebrated the announcement of the Man Booker International Prize longlist on Wednesday, with 13 novels from around the world making the cut. The award celebrates works that were translated into English and published in the U.K. Many of the books have already been released in the U.S. as well, and some are still on the way. Here's how to find each of the finalists:
Swallowing Mercury by Wioletta Greg (Poland)
A paperback edition of this novel about memories of a rural youth is coming to the U.S. on Sept. 12. You can pre-order that, or in the mean time, Amazon is selling used copies of the U.K. edition.
The Unseen by Roy Jacobsen (Norway)
This novel about a fishing family living alone on an island doesn't appear to have an official U.S. release planned, but used copies of the U.K. edition are available on Amazon.
The Traitor's Niche by Ismail Kadare (Albania)
Like The Unseen, there doesn't appear to be an official U.S. release planned for this novel about rebellion in the Ottoman Empire, but used U.K. copies are available on Amazon.
Bricks and Mortar by Clemens Meyer (Germany)
There doesn't appear to be an official U.S. release planned for this novel about sex work in the former German Democratic Republic, but used copies of the U.K. edition are available on Amazon.
Mirror, Shoulder, Signal by Dorthe Nors (Denmark)
Again, no official U.S. edition seems to be set for this novel about a 40-something woman learning to drive, but used U.K. copies can be found on Amazon.
