Awards: John Glassco Literary Translation

The Literary Translators' Association of Canada has named Catherine Leroux the winner of this year's C$1,000 (about US$1,321) John Glassco Literary Translation Prize, given for the best translation into English or French, Quillblog reported. The Montreal author was honored for Corps conducteurs, her French translation of Sean Michaels's Scotiabank Giller Prize–winning novel, Us Conductors.

"Leroux has crafted a lively translation full of beautiful prose delivered in an elegant and believable vernacular similar to the one used in Lev Termen's semi-fictional universe," the jury said.
