Albertine Prize Finalist

The Heart, a novel by Maylis De Kerangal(translated from the French by Sam Taylor, FSG/US, Éditions Verticales/FR) is long-listed for the Albertine Prize, a reader’s choice award. Albertine booksellers have selected ten of the best French novels translated into English in the past year; US-based readers can vote between March 16 and April 30th on the Albertine site here.

 

The Heart takes place over the 24 hours surrounding a fatal car crash and the subsequent heart transplant as life is taken from a young man and given to a dying woman. As stylistically audacious as it is emotionally explosive, the book examines the deepest emotions of everyone involved – grieving parents, doctors and nurses – as they navigate decisions of life and death. The book won numerous prizes.

Translated from the French by Sam Taylor, Farrar, Straus & Giroux (US), Verticales (FR)
