2015 Austrian Cultural Forum Translation Prize Announced

tessThe Austrian Cultural Forum has just announced that its 2015 translation prize is being awarded to Tess Lewis for her translation-in-progress of Maja Haderlap’s novel Engel des Vergessens (Angel of Oblivion). The $5000 award will be presented at a March 24 ceremony at the Austrian Cultural Forum (details to come). Lewis, whose previous translations from French and German include works by Peter Handke, Alois Hotschnig, Julya Rabinowich, Melinda Nadj Abonji, Pascal Bruckner, and Jean-Luc Benoziglio, is also the curator of Festival Neue Literatur, which will take place next month (Feb. 19 – 22) in New York.
