We are delighted to announce that Martin Aitken’s translation of Hanne Ørstavik’s Love won the 2019 PEN Translation Prize last night!
We’re enormously grateful to PEN America and the Translation Prize judges, Ezra Fitz, Barbara Harshav, Vincent Kling, Marian Schwartz, and Ron Slate, who wrote, “What we have, in the end, with Love, is an extraordinary translation of an uncannily singular novel, one which the judges will be savoring for many years to come.”
We’d also like to send our warmest congratulations to all of last night’s winners and finalists.
Love is available at major retailers and your local independent bookstore. You can also order Love directly from us. Use discount code LOVE30 at checkout for 30% off before Sunday, March 9.
As Aitken said in his acceptance speech, “Here’s to Love!”
