Congratulations to Sheila Fischman for her Governor General’s Award nomination in the Translation category for The Blue Notebook. Fischman translated all three novels in Michel Tremblay‘s Notebooks series.
In response to the last book in the trilogy, the Canada Council jury commented:
Sheila Fischman’s highly-accomplished translation captures Michel Tremblay’s lovelorn Céline and Montreal’s “The Main” during the 1960s with a clarity that resonates with the era. Fischman is a first‑class artist whose mastery of language is completely in tune with Tremblay’s rhythm and sensual nostalgia.
To celebrate Sheila Fischman‘s nomination, Talonbooks is offering for a limited time The Black Notebook, The Red Notebook, and The Blue Notebook for $50 (plus applicable taxes and shipping and handling) — retail value $70.
