2018 Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize Announced

Today was Oxford Translation Day at St. Anne’s College, at the culmination of which the winner of the 2018 Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize was announced. And the winner is . . . Such Small Hands by Andrés Barba, translated by Lisa Dillman. This makes me especially happy because this was the very first book published by the brand-new translation-themed publishing house Transit Books in 2017, and the book’s success is a tribute to the editors’ good taste and acumen. The Oxford-Weidenfeld Prize is for a book published in the UK though, so it’s officially Portobello Books that gets the publication credit here. I was proud to get a shout-out for my shortlisted book as well. Big congratulations to Lisa Dillman on having her translation selected for the prize!
