The International Man Booker Prize Goes To A Book About A Woman Whose Vegetarianism Ruins Relationships (And Her Life)


“The novel had an unusual path to publication. Deborah Smith, a 28-year-old British translator, read a Korean edition of ‘The Vegetarian’ about four years ago when she was studying for her Ph.D., and decided to send a sample translation to a British publisher, who was won over by the first 10 pages.”
