Anneli Jordahl’s The Bear Hunter’s Daughters, or as it is known in French, Les Filles du Chausseur D’Ours (translated by Anna Gibson and published by Éditions l’Observatoire), has been shortlisted for the Prix Fragonard. The prize, which was established in 2022 and which has previously been awarded to Theodora Dimova and Yoko Tawada, “aims to promote openness to other cultures and to highlight female talent, but also to choose a novel that invites us to travel beyond our borders and explore other cultures.”

The winner will be announced on May 14. In the meantime, we are keeping our fingers crossed for Anneli and her book.
