Times Literary Supplement Translation Award (2009)

Noting that "the art--or craft--of translation is in good shape," if underappreciated, the Times Literary Supplement honored seven translators with awards for their work in 2009. The winners are:

Anthea Bell: Schlegel-Tieck Prize for Burning Secret by Stefan Zweig
Thomas Teal: Bernard Shaw Prize for Fair Play by Tove Jansson
Polly McLean: Scott Moncrieff Prize for Gross Margin by Laurent Quintreau
Samah Selim: Saif Ghobash-Banipal Prize for The Collar and the Bracelet by Yahya Taher Abdullah

Peter Bush: Calouste-Gulbenkian Foundation Prize for Equator by Miguel Sousa Tavares
Sam Garrett: Vondel Prize for Ararat by Frank Westerman
