Man Booker International Prize

I've put off posting about this award but now everyone's talking about it.

Major difficulty: no Australian authors

Major surprise: Stanislaw Lem (an sf writer no less)

Major misunderstanding: what is this prize about? I reckon it arose from the fracas that ensued a few years back after it was announced that the country-based eligibility clause might be changed for the annual Booker Prize. So why did they come up with a bi-annual form of the Nobel? I have no idea.
