Penguin also has a strong showing on the six-strong list, with two Hamish Hamilton titles, Jamil Ahmad’s The Wandering Falcon and River of Smoke by Amitav Ghosh, both also published by Penguin India. Penguin’s The Good Muslim by Tahmima Anam is also shortlisted.

The list is completed by Mohammed Hanif’s Our Lady of Alice Bhatti (Vintage/Random House India) and The Walls of Delhi by Uday Prakash, translated by Jason Grunebaum (UWA Publishing).
