The 2017 Best Translated Book Award longlists are here! I’m very delighted to be on the Fiction longlist in such excellent company. Special commendation is due to the inestimable Margaret Jull Costa, who translated three and a half of the books on the Fiction longlist. She’s such a champ – I love her work, as I do that many of the translators whose books are listed here in both poetry and prose. I don’t envy the judges their task.
This year’s juries include Trevor Berrett, Monica Carter, Rachel Cordasco, Jennifer Croft, Lori Feathers, Jeremy Garber, Mark Haber, George Henson, and Steph Opitz (Fiction) and Jarrod Annis, Katrine Øgaard Jensen, Tess Lewis, Becka McKay, and Emma Ramadan (Poetry). Read More →
