International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award




"Harvest by British author Jim Crace is the winner of the 2015 International IMPAC DUBLIN Literary Award.

The Award is organised by Dublin City Council and at €100,000 is the world’s largest prize for a single novel published in English. Uniquely, the IMPAC DUBLIN receives its nominations from public libraries in cities around the globe and recognises both writers and translators. The winner was announced at a ceremony in Dublin’s Mansion House today.

Jim Crace was born in Hertfordshire and grew up in North London. He is the author of ten previous novels, including Quarantine which was shortlisted for the award in 1999.

The winning novel was chosen from a total of 142 titles, nominated by libraries in 114 cities in 39 countries.  It was first published in the UK by Picador. The shortlist of ten novels, as chosen by an international panel of judges, included novels from five continents. Jim Crace is the fourth British author to win the prize in its 20 year history.

“Harvest is a story that explores some of our greatest fears, those of change and difference” said Margaret Hayes, Dublin City Librarian. “Jim Crace, our 20th winner, joins a unique creative collective whose stories will continue to cast a spell over readers for many years to come.”
