2019 National Book Award for Translated Literature Announced

It’s the second year of the newly revived National Book Award for Translated Literature, and the winning book from the stellar shortlist was announced last night: it’s Baron Wenckheim’s Homecoming by László Krasznahorkai, translated from Hungarian by Ottilie Mulzet and published by New Directions, which must certainly be celebrating taking home this prestigious award for the second year running. Many congratulations are in order, including to Ottilie Mulzet, who (along with George Szirtes and John Batki) has been translating this challenging and magnificent author for many years now.
