Discover the Best of New French Fiction!

March 13, 2017 | By French Culture

We are thrilled to announce the first Albertine Prize, a reader's choice award for contemporary French fiction in English translation. 

The Albertine Prize recognizes American readers’ favorite work of contemporary Francophone fiction. Hand picked by the expert Albertine staff, the ten shortlisted novels have been translated and published in the US in the past year. The selection presents a range of stories from many diverse locations and perspectives, reminding us of the importance of looking beyond one’s own borders.

We invite you to discover some of the books from the shortlist below, and if you enjoy one, vote before April 30 at!
