Over at Three Percent, I explain why Marcos Giralt Torrente’s The End of Love should take the Best Translated Book Award. In all honesty I think this book may be a bit of a longshot because short books (in particular short books of stories) tend not to be taken as seriously as they could be, but it is good to have his name out there. As I explain in the post, there’s more Torrente on the way, and I do think there will be more for years to come.
Fun fact: in researching this piece I discovered that Torrente is a member of Enrique Vila-Matas’s Order of Finnegans. That’s cool.
