It may only be his first novel, but Quynh Tran's Shade and Breeze has undeniably caught the attention of the Finnish and Finno-Swedish prize juries. Having been awarded Svenska Yle's Literature Prize only recently, we are now excited to reveal that Tran's debut is also a runner-up for the eminent Runeberg Prize. The prize is awarded annually to a novel, poetry collection or short story collection and among previous winners we can find internationally successful authors such as Monika Fagerholm, Sofi Oksanen and Katja Kettu. The winner of this year's prize will be announced on the 5th of February which is also "Runeberg Day". We wish Quynh the best of luck!
