The 2020 EBRD Literature Prize shortlist has been announced. In this short film the four judges discuss the Prize and the three shortlisted books. The Prize, now in its third year and funded by the London-based EBRD Bank, celebrates the very best in translated literature from the nearly 40 countries where the Bank invests: from central and eastern Europe to Central Asia, the Western Balkans and the southern and eastern Mediterranean. The Prize is awarded to the best work of literary fiction originally written in a language from one of these countries, which has been translated into English and published by a UK publisher. The winner will be announced on 22nd April.
