Man Booker International Prize: Eligible Books 2018

In the Goodreads tradition of the annual Booker eligible lists, this is a list of prospects for the new-style Man Booker International Prize.
(N.B. this list has no official connection with, or bearing on, the prize.)

The award is for a single work of fiction, translated into English and published in the UK.
Both novels and short story collections are eligible for the International Prize.

Other years:
Man Booker International Prize Eligible Books 2017
Man Booker International Prize Eligible Books 2016

If adding a title to this list, please bear in mind:
- Author and translator must be living at the time of the prize.
- The book must have its first UK publication between 1 May 2017 and 30 April 2018.
- No retranslations, or reprints of translations previously published in Britain.
- Publisher must have its "principal place of business in the UK" and have a UK ISBN. (The translation may have been released earlier in other English-speaking countries, but never previously issued by any British publisher. UK ISBN-10s - but also those issued in several other English-speaking countries - start with a 0 or 1.)

Thanks.
