Books from seven categories have been awarded annually since 1990. The categories are children’s books; debut books; crime and thriller books; fiction; lifestyle nonfiction; narrative nonfiction; and audio books.
Originally published in 2012 in Korea, Haemin’s essay has remained popular here for years. The English edition published by Penguin Life also topped British Amazon’s best-sellers list upon its release in February 2017.
Final winners of the awards are scheduled to be announced on May 14 at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.
