ten books shortlisted for 2015 award

Here we are again.
Another literary prize.
This time the award is coming from Dublin, Ireland. Ten novels have managed to reach the shortlist. The prize is worth the staggering amount of €100,000.

Two African writers have made it to the shortlist.

One is the Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adiuchie the other one is from Moroccco, Mahi Binebine. Some time ago I read his book ‘Cannibales’ on refugees who try to reach the European shores. A theme that is still very relevant.
