Best European Fiction 2012!

March 12th, 2011 § 5 comments

I’m proud to announce that my translation of Bernard Quiriny’s “Rara Avis” will join the roster of authors, translators, and stories honored by inclusion in Dalkey Archive‘s anthology Best European Fiction 2012, guest edited by Aleksandar Hemon. This will mark Belgian Francophone fabulist Quiriny’s third appearance in the U.S., after “A Guide to Famous Stabbings” in the Spring 2010 Subtropics and “Fear of the First Line” in the July 2010 issue of World Literature Today. While these stories were taken from his first collection, Fear of the First Line, the story in the Dalkey anthology is taken from his second collection, Contes carnivores, which won the Prix Rossel, Francophone Belgium’s top literary prize. I’d like to thank Dalkey Archive, editor Hemon, the Fulbright Foundation, and the NEA for their support of my work on this author.

Congratulations to all in the anthology!
