Rawley Grau's translation of PANORAMA shortlisted for the Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize 2017
Panorama is an extraordinary, uncategorizable book, that is moving in its human dramas and ambitious in its cultural scope. It is also a topical novel of belonging and non-belonging, and of the different kinds of exile – national, linguistic, cultural – that lies at the heart of one strand of the European experience. 'A narrative about the course of events' is its subtitle, and it is indeed a rangy, poetic, journalistic, fictional melancholy book of travel in time, place and mind. Rawley Grau's translation is true to the book's sensibility, and is a triumph and empathy as well linguistic skill in the face of what must have been fierce difficulty. Grau's Panorama is everything a great translation should be.
