International Prize Winner

Flights

Winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2018 is Polish writer Olga Tokarzck for Flights translated by Jennifer Croft.

The Guardian reports Tokarczuk is a bestselling author in Poland, where she has won numerous awards and is a household name. In Flights, she meditates on travel and human anatomy, moving between stories including the Dutch anatomist who discovered the Achilles tendon when dissecting his own amputated leg, and the tale of Chopin’s heart as his sister transported it from Paris to Warsaw.
