Chris Clarke Nominated for BTBA Longlists Award
In the Café of Lost Youth by Patrick Mondiano, translated by Chris Clarke
Chris Clarke has been nominated for his translation of Patrick Modiano's "In the Café of Lost Youth" (NYRB Classics), for this year's prestigious Best Translated Book Award for fiction and poetry.
"Founded in 2008 by Three Percent at the University or Rochester, the award has grown exponentially over the past 10 years. The focus on finding the best books in translation from the past year has been constant, but the pool of eligible titles has expanded from 360 in 2008 to more than 600 for this year’s award. For these longlists, the 14 judges — nine for fiction, five for poetry — considered works written by authors from 87 countries in 54 different languages, and published in English by 179 distinct presses."
