De International DUBLIN Literary Award is toegekend aan Milkman van Anna Burns.

What an honour. I’m thrilled to bits and am about to break into my sevens with the excitement of it all! This is an extraordinary honour – especially given the fantastic list I find myself on. I thank the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Hazel Chu, and Dublin City Council for being the patron and the host of this generous award. Also I salute them for representing Dublin’s position at the cultural heart of world wide literature

Aan de prijs is een bedrag van € 100.000 verbonden.
