Six Memos a finalist for PEN Center USA Award

I was very pleasantly surprised to see that my re-translation of Calvino’s great Six Memos for the Next Millennium is a finalist for the 2017 PEN Center USA Literary Award in Translation. And I’m in amazing company; the other nominees are: Kareem James Abu-Zeid for Confessions by Rabee Jaber (New Directions), Philip Boehm for The Fox Was Ever the Hunter by Herta Müller (Metropolitan), and Jordan Stump for Cockroaches by Scholastique Mukasonga (Archipelago).
