Hassan Blasim wins Independent Foreign Fiction Prize 2014!

Hassan Blasim, author, and Jonathan Wright, translator, win the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize 2014- the first time an Arab writer has won the prize and the first time a short story collection has won. And you will remember that this prize uniquely awards the author and translator equally. For more about the work, the author and his plans for publication in the Arab world, see the Guardian article, for my review of the short stories, see here
