The Tree and the Vine nominated for the Vondel Prize

Onze verontschuldigingen, dit bericht is alleen beschikbaar in het Amerikaans Engels.

My English translation of The Tree and the Vine by Dola de Jong, published by Transit Books, is one of nine books longlisted for the Vondel Prize, a biannual award for Dutch literature in translation. I couldn’t be more delighted, and I’m sure if Dola were alive today, she’d be thrilled as well! The Translator’s Note at the end of the book can be read on LitHub. Reviews can be found in The Paris Review, the New York Times and Harper’s.
