I'm so pleased! The Goethe Institut Chicago have announced that my extremely talented friend Shelley Frisch will receive the Wolff Translator's Prize for her rendering of Rainer Stach's Kafka - The Years of Insight. It's the second part of a mammoth biography trilogy, which Shelley has been working on with immense dedication for years.
I've had the pleasure and the honour of working with Shelley at a week-long workshop, where I learned just how good she is at her craft. And I interviewed her a couple of years ago too. Shelley is a great translator who focuses on non-fiction, and I'm delighted she's getting the recognition she deserves. Bravo, my dear!
