PEN/Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The PEN/Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize is an annual award given to outstanding translations into the English language. It has been presented annually by PEN American Center and the Book of the Month Club since 1963.
The distinction comes with a cash prize of USD $3,000. Any book-length English translation published in the United States during the year in question is eligible, irrespective of the residence or nationality of either the translator or the original author.
The award is separate from the similar PEN Award for Poetry in Translation.
