The FT Picks Visitation

After all the kind reviews my translation of Jenny Erpenbeck’s Visitation received in England this fall, I am not so surprised (but nonetheless thrilled) to see it appear in the Financial Times‘s end-of-year fiction round-up. FT critic Ángel Gurría-Quintana calls the book a “minimalist masterpiece.” Also delightful is the fact that the FT‘s “best-of” lists include an entire column of books in translation. Maureen Freely’s translation of The Museum of Innocence by Orhan Pamuk also made the list, as did To the End of the Land by David Grossman, translated by Jessica Cohen.
