2014 IFFP shortlist announced

Missed this the other day, but I see that Tony Malone has done an excellent recap of the 2014 Independent Foreign Fiction Prize shortlist, with reviews of four of the six finalists, as well as an alt-shortlist that he and other members of the "Shadow Panel" did based on their readings of the longlisted titles.  Be sure to read those reviews, as there are a few works that I want to read once I resume buying books in a couple of weeks.  Here are the shortlisted titles, with bolded titles for the ones I've already read:

Hiromi Kawakami, Strange Weather in Tokyo (published in the US as The Briefcase; Asian Prize finalist in 2013)

Hassan Blasim, The Iraqi Christ

Karl Ove Knausgård, A Man in Love

Birget Vanderbeke, The Mussel Feast

Yoko Ogawa, Revenge

Hubert Mingarelli, A Meal in Winter

The winner will be announced May 22.
