2016 Firecracker Award in Fiction Goes to a Translated Book

Things_We_Dont_Do-front_frameThe Firecracker Awards honor independently published and self-published literature, so it’s no surprise that lots of translated books wound up on their shortlist this year, nor that one of last year’s winners, Marie NDiaye’s Self-Portrait in Green, translated by Jordan Stump (Two Lines Press) was a translation. This year, too, a translation has been honored among the newly announced 2016 honorees: The Things We Don’t Do by Andrés Neuman, translated from the Spanish by Nick Caistor & Lorenza Garcia (Open Letter Books). So glad to see a representative of the robust translation sector of independent publishing honored. Congratulations!
