10 best translated fiction | The Independent

Translation has always been a sensitive business. Translation can incite controversy — but it can also incite much worse, as in Tudor England where unauthorised translation could prove grounds for a hanging. Still, in spite of the troubles and terrors it occasionally kindles, translation has become a foundation of literature in a modern globalised world. Translated fiction has especially enjoyed something of a rebirth among English readers in recent years, thanks in part to the efforts of publishers capitalising on the popularity of contemporary writers like Stieg Larsson, Haruki Murakami and Karl Ove Knausgaard. The books collected here, all published within the last year, showcase some of this contemporary talent alongside some fresh translations of older and grander writers like Franz Kafka and Alexander Pushkin.
