Awards: Albertine Winner

Not One Day by Anne Garréta, translated by Emma Ramadan (Deep Vellum) has won the $10,000 2018 Albertine Prize, which is co-presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and Van Cleef & Arpels to recognize "American readers' favorite French-language fiction title that has been translated into English and distributed in the U.S. within the preceding calendar year."

Prize organizers said that in Not One Day, "Anne Garréta unfolds twelve gripping vignettes about her experiences with desire. The book holds intimate and erotic anecdotes (along with melancholy and reflective ones), however, as Emma Ramadan, the book's translator, points out, 'when viewed through the prism of memory, desire in this book turns into something raw and emotional rather than physical.' "
