The 2011 Best Translated Book Award winners were announced tonight.
Fiction: The True Deceiver, by Tove Jansson, translated from the Swedish by Thomas Teal
Poetry: The Book of Things, by Aleš Šteger, translated from the Slovenian by Brian Henry
Excellent! And this is the first year the winners get some prize money, $5,000 for each author and $5,000 for each translator (I’m not sure what they do if the author is deceased). I have had The True Deceiver for over a year and will pull it down as soon as possible.
