The Little Communist Who Never Smiled has been nominated for the Albertine Prize, a reader's choice award for best contemporary French fiction in English translation. Lola Lafon's award-winning novel offers a fictionalized account of iconic gymnast Nadia Comaneci’s life, from her rural Romanian childhood to her unprecedented perfect score in the 1976 Olympics and to her 1989 defection to the U.S. The book re-imagines a childhood in the spotlight of history, a woman adored by young girls in the West and appropriated as a political emblem in Communist Romania. Translated by Nick Caistor (Seven Stories Press). Vote for the Albertine Prize through April 30th!
