  • Abstract: ABSTRACT:

    Frank Wynne offers a literary translator's view of celebrity. While focusing on the importance of both the translator and literary prizes in establishing authors' reputations across cultural contexts, his piece also exemplifies how literary celebrity is a process involving multiple agents who negotiate very unequal systems of value. This pertains both to different types of literary fiction and to wider industry considerations underpinning the different language markets in which this fiction must assert itself.
