Writer Orhan Pamuk will get another chance to contend for the International Dublin Literary Award.

The Turkish author won the prize in 2003 for his novel My Name is Red – and he’s now onthe 2017 short list for A Strangeness in My Mind..translated by Ekin Oklap.

Also included on the short-list is The Green Road by Irish author Anne Enright and The Sympathizer  by Vietnamese-American author Viet Thanh Nguyen.

Novels in translation from Angola, Austria, Mexico and Mozambique are also among the contenders.

The $141,000  International Dublin Literary Award is billed as the world’s most valuable annual literary prize – for a single work of fiction published in English.

Margaret Atwood, Lawrence Hill, Andre Alexis and Patrick deWitt were among more than a dozen Canadian authors longlisted for the prize – but none made the final cut.
