2019 NSW Premier’s Translation Prize Announced

The New South Wales Premier’s Translation Prize is awarded every two years to an Australian literary translator who has made a significant contribution to literary culture. This year’s $30,000 (AUD) prize has gone to Alison Entrekin, a translator from Portuguese whose works include novels by Chico Buarque, City of God by Paolo Lins, and Clarice Lispector’s Near to the Wild Heart. The judges comments and more information about the award can be found on the website of the New South Wales State Library. I, too, find her work quite gorgeous and couldn’t be more pleased to see this announcement. Congratulations, Alison!
