ALTA Translation Prizes 2013

Oh, silly me, I forgot the most important thing I should have reported on after the ALTA conference.

The 2013 Lycien Stryk Prize, which promotes the translation of Asian works into English, was awarded to Lucas Klein for his translation of Notes on the Mosquito: Selected Poems by Xi Chuan (New Directions, 2012).

The 2013 National Translation Award, which celebrates a book-length translated work in any genre, was awarded to Philip Boehm for his translation of Nobel laureate Herta Müller’s great novel The Hunger Angel (Picador, 2012).

Congratulations to both the winners!
