Social Fiction a finalist for LA Times Book Prize

I’m delighted that my translation of Chantal Montellier’s Social Fiction has been named a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in the Graphic Novel category. It’s the latest in a string of great press this book has received. It’s up against some stiff competition; the other finalists are: Derek M. Ballard’s “Cartoonshow” (Oni Press), Matías Bergara and Simon Spurrier’s “CODA” (BOOM! Studios), Emily Carroll’s “A Guest in the House” (First Second), and Sammy Harkham’s “Blood of the Virgin” (Pantheon).

It’s worth noting that Social Fiction is the only translation on the list. Also, it’s the second time one of my translations has been up for an LA Times Book Prize. Skylark Farm, by Antonia Arslan (Knopf, 2007), was a finalist for the Art Seidenbaum Award for First Fiction way back in 2008.
