IMPAC Dublin Book Awards

The short list has been announced:

The Speed of Light by Javier Cercas (Spanish)
The Sweet and Simple Kind by Yasmine Gooneratne (Sri Lankan)
de Niro's Game by Rawi Hage (Lebanese Canadian)
Dreams of Speaking by Gail Jones (Australian)
Let It Be Morning by Sayed Kashua (Israeli)
The Attack by Yasmina Khadra (Algerian) [I've read this]
The Woman Who Waited by Andrei Makine (Russian)
Winterwood by Patrick McCabe (Irish)

I've read only one of them so far, so the list grows again.
