NORLA’s book tips for the 2022 International Translation Day

Hieronymus kollasj 2022

We at NORLA want to showcase the crucial work translators do, and in the last week of September we will join the worldwide celebration of the patron saint of translators, St. Jerome, or St. Hieronymus as he is known in Norway.
Even though our task is promoting literature from Norway, we like to use the occasion of The Interational Translation Day – in Norway called “Hieronymus Day” – to recommend good books that have been translated well into Norwegian.

Thank you to all the translators out there who make world literature available to us!

If you happen to read Norwegian you may read our book tips here.
(And if you don’t, you might still be able to figure out the titles, or recognize the authors, as all are translations into Norwegian).

Books from Norway provides you with English-language information about all genres of Norwegian literature. The information is provided by the rightsholders and NORLA.
