De International Booker Prize is toegekend aan At Night All Blood is Black van David Diop. Dat is woensdag bekendgemaakt. Aan de International Booker Prize is een bedrag van 50.000 pond verbonden waarvan de helft voor de vertaler, in dit geval Anna Moschovakis, is. De jury over de keuze voor At Night All Blood is Black:

This story of warfare and love and madness has a terrifying power. The protagonist is accused of sorcery, and there is something uncanny about the way the narrative works on the reader. We judges agreed that its incantatory prose and dark, brilliant vision had jangled our emotions and blown our minds. That it had cast a spell on us.
