Polish writer longlisted for US National Book Award

The novel, described by its American publisher Random House as a “thriller cum fairy tale,” has been nominated in the Translated Literature category along with nine other books by international authors.

First published in Poland in 2009, Tokarczuk’s murder mystery was adapted for the silver screen in 2017 by Polish filmmakers Agnieszka Holland and Kasia Adamik under the title Spoor.

Translated into English by Antonia Lloyd-Jones, the novel has garnered excellent reviews in the international press.

Earlier this year, Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead was shortlisted for, but failed to win, the Man Booker International Prize.

Tokarczuk won that prestigious award last year for her novel Flights.

Tokarczuk’s Flights made the short list for last year’s US National Book Award, but did not win.

The winners of this year’s National Book Awards will be announced in New York on November 20.
