Giller Prize

On 17, Oct 2018 | In Uncategorized | By Peter McCambridge

“the translation is as exquisite as a snowflake.” (Giller Prize jury)

“Dupont said he was thrilled with McCambridge’s rendering of his words, saying if he had the vocabulary in English, he would like to write just like him.” (The Canadian Press)

In 2018, Songs for the Cold of Heart – my translation of Eric Dupont’s La Fiancée américaine – was named a finalist for the Giller Prize, Canada’s leading literary award. It is forthcoming from HarperVia, as The American Fiancée, in February 2020.
