Nordic Prize Nominations
I mentioned this yesterday in passing, but the nominations for this year’s Nordic Literature Prize have recently been announced. And yes, despite the intro paragraph reference to 2005, these are all books published in Nordic countries during 2008.
Aside from Petterson, there are only a couple authors on this list them I’m familiar with. This award is consistently given to really good books (here’s a list of past winners including Jan Kjaerstad’s The Discoverer, which we’re bringing out next fall), so this list of authors is worth checking out.
The winner will be announced on April 3rd.
