The 2016 PEN Translation Awards have been announced–congrats to translators Katrina Dodson and Sawako Nakayasu, who have taken this year’s prose and poetry awards.
We’re particularly pleased to say that both of this year’s winners have got connections to Two Lines and the Center for the Art of Translation. Back in September of last year we hosted prose prize recipient Katrina Dodson to discuss her translation of Clarice Lispector’s Complete Stories (frmo New Directions) with our own Scott Esposito. Listen to it here.
And as to Sawako Nakayasu, we published four poems from her winning The Collected Poems of Chika Sagawa (from Canarium Books) in Two Lines Issue 21. With Canarium’s kind permission we have made those poems available online, which you can read right here.
