Little Eyes by Samanta Schweblin and translated by Megan McDowell has been longlisted for the International Booker Prize 2020. The prize celebrates the finest translated fiction from around the world, recognising both author and translatior. 

This year the judges considered 124 books before selecting the 13 longlisted titles. The shortlist will be announced on 2nd April.
