Neustadt in the News

Orhan Pamuk was a finalist for the Neustadt in 1992 and 2006. He recently received the Erdal Öz Literary Prize in Turkey.

Another glowing review for Neustadt prize-winner Mia Couto: “Mia Couto is a master storyteller. I’ve admired his earlier novels and hope that Confessions of the Lioness (in a vivid translation by David Brookshaw) and this edition by a major publisher will provide him with the increased visibility and readership he has long deserved.”

Check out this book review for Neustadt finalist Guadalupe Nettel’s The Body Where I Was Born on Book Forum.
