Ersi Sotiropoulos’s What’s Left of the Night wins translation award

At its annual conference in Rochester, the American Literary Translators Association (ALTA) named its National Translation Award winners for 2019, as the United States market’s “only national award for translated fiction, poetry, and literary nonfiction that includes a rigorous examination of both the source text and its relation to the finished English work.”

Translater Emmerich works in both Greek poetry and prose and is known for her translation of the late Eleni Vakalo’s Before Lyricism (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2017).  Jeremy Tiang presented the award, which pays US$2,500.
