2015 Best Translated Book Award Winners

11336913_865331576866451_8649647756198848577_oI’ve been tooling around England all week, so missed the chance to celebrate with and blog promptly about the winners of the 2015 Best Translated Book Award. So with no further ado, here are the winning books:

In Fiction: The Last Lover by Can Xue, translated from the Chinese by Annelise Finegan Wasmoen.

In Poetry: Diorama by Rocío Cerón, translated from the Spanish by Anna Rosenwong.

Each winning writer and translator will receive a cash award of $5000.

Given recent discussions about the relative paucity of female authors having their work selected for major translation prizes, I’m particularly delighted to see an all-women slate of winners this year. Big congratulations to Anna and Annelise!
