London: Six books, set in locations including Istanbul and the Austrian Alps, during periods as mixed as the great famine in China and the Angolan civil war, telling stories of a female friendship in Camorra-controlled Naples and of a Korean wife’s transformative rebellion, have been announced as the finalists for the 2016 Man Booker International prize.

 

Han Kang is shortlisted for The Vegetarian, her first novel to be translated into English. The tale of a young woman whose decision to stop eating meat sets loose dark dreams and violence within her family, it was described by the judges as an “evocative and suggestive” book that “startles, for the depths of its strangeness”.
