Best Translated Book Award Wins New London Book Fair Prize

Perhaps you’ll recall that I blogged two weeks ago about the new roster of prizes being offered this year by the London Book Fair, including the International Literary Translation Initiative Award. In a potentially quite confusing mise en abyme, one of the top contenders for that prize was itself a prize, the Best Translated Book Award. And now that the LBF has released its list of International Book Industry Excellent Award winners, I am delighted to announce that the prize has indeed gone to the Best Translated Book Award. If you wish to congratulate the prize’s founder, Chad Post, hop on over to the Three Percent blog, where celebrations are underway. Probably a good idea to keep an eye on Three Percent anyhow, since it’s getting to be BTBA 2014 shortlist time. And for your further entertainment, Biblioasis has put together a list of particularly compelling sentences culled from the 2014 BTBA fiction longlist. Enjoy!
