Steve Hartman's Translation of Sleet Nominated for Prize

Sleet, a collection of stories by major Swedish author Stig Dagerman (1923-1954), translated into English by former NYS Writers Institute graduate assistant Steve Hartman, has been longlisted for the 2014 Best Translated Book Award.
Hartman visited us last October for a celebration of Stig Dagerman, who committed suicide in 1954 at the age of 31. The celebration was also attended by Lo Dagerman, Stig's daughter with Swedish movie star Anita Björk.
