The DSC prize for South Asian literature announced

Three Indian, two Pakistani and one Sri Lankan author are on the six-book shortlist for the 2014 DSC Prize which was announced recently at the London School of Economics.  This prize was started in 2010 and is thus only in its fourth year.   However, along with its US $50,000 in prize-money, it has led to its winners being published globally and reaching a very wide audience.  The prize, sponsored by DSC Limited, is open to anyone writing about South Asia.  “Authors could belong to this region through birth or be of any ethnicity but the writing should pertain to the South Asian region in terms of content and theme.”  In this way, it seems a lot like our own journal, Jaggery.

The shortlist for the 2014 prize is:

  1. Anand: Book of Destruction (Translated by Chetana Sachidanandan; Penguin, India)
  2. Benyamin: Goat Days   (Translated by Joseph Koyippalli; Penguin, India)
  3. Cyrus Mistry: Chronicle of a Corpse Bearer (Aleph Book Company, India)
  4. Mohsin Hamid: How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia (Hamish Hamilton/Penguin, India)
  5. Nadeem Aslam: The Blind Man’s Garden (Random House, India)
  6. Nayomi Munaweera: Island of a Thousand Mirrors (Perera Hussein Publishing, Sri Lanka)

The winner will be announced at the DSC Jaipur Literature Festival on January 18, 2014.
