Best Translated Book of 2008
The panel of international lit fans behind the Best Translated Book of 2008 award is starting its discussions about which titles should make the longlist, but there’s still time for you to get your vote in. Please feel free to enter your recommendations into the comments section, or e-mail them to me at chad.post at rochester dot edu. The sooner the better—we will be finalizing the 25 longlist titles in the not too distant future.
In case you need a refresher of which translated books came out this year, here’s an updated spreadsheet listing all 339 titles identified so far. (I hesitate to call this a final list, since ever couple days a new title trickles in . . . But if not final, it’s very, very close.)
