PEN American Center’s 2013 Literary Award Winners

August 22, 2013 | By French Culture

The PEN American Center’s Literary Awards department has recently announced the winners of the 2013 PEN/Heim Translation Fund. Among the thirteen winners are The Conductor and Other Tales by Jean Ferry (trans. Edward Gauvin), The Bridges of Budapest by Jean-Paul de Dadelsen (trans. Marilyn Hacker), and France, récit d'une enfance (France, Story of childhood) by Zahia Rahmani (trans. Lara Vergnaud). For a complete list of winner and excerpts from their translation projects, please visit the PEN website here.


The PEN/Heim Translation Fund provides grants to support the translation of book-length works of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, or drama that have not previously appeared in English in print or have appeared only in an outdated or otherwise flawed translation.  With grants ranging from $2,000 to $4,000, the Fund seeks to encourage translators to undertake projects they might not otherwise have had the means to attempt.
