We are delighted that Alice E. Olsson has been shortlisted for the Society of Author's Bernard Shaw Prize for her translation of The Herd by Johan Anderberg!
Judge Amanda Svensson had this to say about the shortlist:
‘From the lyrical to the matter–of–fact, these translators have captured the essence of each of their authors tone, ambition, quirks and strengths with accuracy and verve. This shortlist is a testament not only to the power of great literature, but also the power of great translation.’
Congratulations to Alice and all the shortlisted translations!
The winner will be announced at a ceremony on Wednesday 7 February 2024. For more information please visit the Society of Authors website here.
