The Best Translated Book Award has announced its winner:

  • Satantango, by László Krasznahorkai, tr. from the Hungarian by George Szirtes

This was my choice this year (and Stone Upon Stone was my choice last year — seriously, this is an award worth watching!). Here are my thoughts, and congrats to all.

    Thank goodness! At least my selection for winner was correct, even if my longlist and finalist list was pathetically wrong. If only Neumann wins in the UK, I’ll be 2 for 2 on winners.
