Covers of Chitambo and Crisis, the two shortlisted translations
Norvik Press are delighted to announce that two of our translators have been shortlisted for the Bernard Shaw Prize 2021:
- Sarah Death for her translation of Chitambo by Hagar Olsson
- Amanda Doxtater for her translation of Crisis by Karin Boye
We are immensely proud of this achievement and its potential to introduce new readers to both of these classics in Nordic modernism and feminism.
The Bernard Shaw Prize is an award for translations into English of full-length Swedish language works of literary merit and general interest. This year’s judges are Charlotte Berry and Annika Lindskog. The award is sponsored by the Embassy of Sweden, London.
The award ceremony will be held in February 2022. If you are planning on reading the shortlist in the meantime, you can read the full press release here and order copies of Chitambo and Crisis through our website or your local indie bookshop. You can also read extracts from both by revisiting our blogposts: start here for Chitambo, and here for Crisis.
