Molly Weigel to Receive the PEN Award for Poetry in Translation
From the Judge’s Citation: “Molly Weigel’s translations of Perednik’s poems are stunning and demanding. The Shock of the Lenders & Other Poems confronts as well as displaces the violence and logic of military and financial dictatorship with its own daring logic and radically coded language. … The translator and her press, Action Books, both deserve much attention for generating this astonishing book.”
