2015 AATSEEL Translation Award Announced

High_Tide_largeFor those who don’t speak Acronym, AATSEEL is the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages, and every two years they give out a prize for the best translation, and this year’s award has gone to Kaija Straumanis for her translation from the Latvian of Inga Ābele’s novel High Tide. I picked an excerpt from this translation for the Two Lines 20th anniversary issue I co-edited with Christopher Merrill back in 2013, finding the narrative voice instantly appealing. Congratulations on the award, Kaija! You’ll find a list of excellent also-rans here.
