Wicked Weeds a finalist for 2017 Best Translated Book Award!

April 28, 2017

Ten works of fiction and five poetry collections remain in the running for this year’s Best Translated Book Awards following the announcement of the two shortlists at The Millions website this morning.

 

A wide range of languages and writing styles are represented on these shortlists, from the more classic works of Lúcio Cardoso (1912-1968) and Antonio di Benedetto (1922-1986), to contemporary voices like Laia Jufresa, Pedro Cabiya, and Sergei Lebedev. This diversity is also present on the poetry side of things, with South Koreanauthor Yideum Kim, Argentine author Alejandra Pizarnik, and

 

Hungarian author Szilárd Borbély each representing a different poetic approach.

 

Congratulations to Pedro Cabiya, the author, and especially to Jessica Powell, who did such a wonderful job translating the novel.
