We received the happy news on Tuesday morning that two Talon titles have been shortlisted for the 2014 Governor General’s Award for Translation. The GGs are one of Canada’s most important book prizes, and these nominations mark Talon’s forty-seventh and forty-eighth GG nominations or wins. The two titles are And Slowly Beauty by Michel Nadeau (translated by Maureen Labonté) and Christina, The Girl King by Michel Marc Bouchard (translated by Linda Gaboriau). Congratulations to these excellent playwrights and translators!
