Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize

27 May 2015

Two books shortlisted!

Nick Caistor and Lorenza Garcia have been shortlisted for their translation of Talking to Ourselves, which the judges described as “a rich, moving conversation from individual accounts of three distinct but intertwined relations”.

Paul Vincent has been shortlisted for his translation of While the Gods Were Sleeping, which the judges called “a poetic and evocative reflection on the memory of the First World War and its subtle, and at times half-recognised, impact on everyday lives”.

The Oxford-Weidenfeld Prize is for book-length literary translations into English from any living European language. It aims to honour the craft of translation, and to recognise its cultural importance.

The winner will be announced on 13th June.
