Olga Tokarczuk Nominated for the Man Booker International Prize

Olga Tokarczuk’s novel Flights has been put on the long list of books nominated for the Man Booker International Prize.

Jennifer Croft translated Flights into English. The book appeared in Great Britain in May 2017, published by Fitzcarraldo Editions. Flights has also recently been made available to readers in the United States.

The News on Sunday wrote in a review that Flights is a novel that “Flights will make you gladder, freer, softer, and it will make you a better lover. Can an unfinished sentence construct an entire ideology? Can you learn to live through the incomplete fragments of poets? Flights is an example of this – shredded stories, cut-outs, vignettes, silhouettes, montage, yes you can, veritably you can. [...] Flights is a thoroughly informed novel, Tokarczuk casually, effortlessly deconstructs and then reconstructs entire spatio-temporal relationships.”
