AUGUST is a Best Translated Book Award Finalist!
Romina Paula's AUGUST is a finalist for the Best Translated Book Award!
In this self-deprecating examination of grief and loss, a young woman parses through the five years since her best friend's suicide. Originally published in Argentina, AUGUST has been translated from the Spanish by Jennifer Croft.
BTBA judge and University Bookstore bookseller Caitlin Baker writes, "The first sentence of August is perfect, it is beautiful, meditative, and for that reason alone August should win the BTBA 2018. Ah, but that would be cheating and August contains so many gorgeous sentences."
To celebrate this award-worthy book, we're thrilled to offer a 30% discount this month only.
The winner will be announced on May 31.
