International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award

Two Irish writers have been included in the shortlist for this year's International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award: David Park for The Light of Amsterdam and Donal Ryan for The Spinning Heart. However, the inclusion of five novels in translation on the shortlist makes it a truly international selection. The IMPAC is worth €100,000 to the winner and is the world's most valuable annual literary award for a single work of fiction published in English.
