The longlist and shortlist for International Booker Prize 2022 have been announced separately and results will also be announced soon, know the predictions for the winner
Formerly known as the Man Booker International Prize, the International Booker Prize is an international literary prize held in the United Kingdom. In June 2004, the International Prize was launched as an alternative to the Man Booker Prize.
From 2005 to 2015, the prize was granted every two years to a living author of any country for a piece of work published in English or widely available in English translation, and it was sponsored by the Man Group.
