Christmas in translation: best translated books of 2008

Dear all,
As 'tis the season (and despite the financial gloom), if anyone is still writing their Christmas list they may find some ideas at the 'Three Percent' website:

Three Percent have just published their longlist of 'best translated books of 2008' on which there are many well-known names but some not so well known. [Allow me to put in a quick plug for 'The Elegance of the Hedgehog', beautifully written in English and thoroughly enjoyable.]

You may also find other items on the website of interest, and there is an interview with the website's editor at

Happy holidays to all!
