Been meaning to post this for a few days but no one seems to have beaten me to it. A novel about the Great War has won the International Booker Prize. A translation of David Diop's 'Frère d'âme', which won several prizes in the original French, it is a short but very powerful work about the Senegalese tirailleurs in the French army on the Western Front. I read it in the original so I don't know the translator managed to capture the idiom in which it was written but I can only recommend it.
