2021 International Booker Prize
The 2021 International Booker Prize winner has been announced in an online ceremony from Coventry Cathedral in England on 2 June 2021.
For the year 2021, winner of the International Booker Prize is ‘At Night All Blood is Black‘, translated from French to English by Anna Moschovakis & published by Pushkin Press. The book is written by French writer David Diop with the French title ‘Frere d’ ame’. This book was first published in 2018.
The International Booker Prize is awarded every year for a single book that is translated into English and published in the UK or Ireland.
David Diop has become the first French writer and first writer of African heritage to win the International Booker Prize.
The £50,000 prize will be equally split between French writer, David Diop and the book’s translator – US author and poet Anna Moschovakis.
At Night All Blood is Black captures the tragedy of a young man’s mind hurtling towards madness and tells the little-heard story of the Senegalese who fought for France on the Western Front during the First World War.
