Banipal

4-Book Shortlist Announced for 2017 Banipal Prize for Arabic Literary Translation

Perhaps it isn’t possible within the structure of an awards shortlist, but would be good to know: 1) what translational challenges the judges identified for each of the books, 2) how they saw the translator awake to these challenges, 3) the specific beauties they found in the translator’s or translators’ decisions.
