** UPDATE ** The Governesses has now been named a fiction finalist for the BTBA prize! ** UPDATE **
Anne Serre’s The Governesses, translated by Mark Hutchinson, has been longlisted for this year’s 2019 Best Translated Book Awards. Founded and directed by Chad Post of Open Letter Books, Rochester, New York, the award is open to first translations of fiction and poetry published in the US.
The Governesses was first published in the US by New Directions in October 2018 and in the UK by Les Fugitives in April, 2019. A brilliant introduction to the work of Anne Serre, with high hopes, we wish the best of luck to our friends at New Directions and to all other BTBA longlisted titles!
