another young shortlist

Yesterday I gave you a link to the shortlist for the International Prize for Arabic Fiction. I also mentioned that the shortlist would be announced today. The announcement has been made in Casablaca. Six authors are left, and seen from my African perspective, I am happy. Writers from Tunesia, Morocco and Sudan are still in the race for the Prize. 

Judging chair Mourid Barghouti with the six shortlisted books.
