It’s official. Han Gang’s The Vegetarian has become the first Korean novel to win the Man Booker International Prize, arguably the most prestigious award for an English literary translation in the world, and worth a cool $72,000, which Han will split with her 28-year-old translator, Deborah Smith.

Congratulations to Ms. Han and Ms. Smith
