Winning a Nobel is in large part a matter of luck, but having the luck is the result of the grand design, the series itself, and the effort, over some decades now, to present America with what we think is the best in world literature.
Donna Shear : Nebraska has always had a tradition of publishing literature in translation. Again, our editors look for authors who are gaining reputations in their own countries and whose themes reach beyond the French speaking world. I think French writers are less plot-driven and more interested in tackling universal and difficult themes. They are more self-critical of their own country, of themselves and write in a more allegorical way. Over the years, we have developed a stable of translators. Sometimes a translator brings a book to our attention; sometimes we see that a translator has translated that author for a different publisher; and sometimes we reach out to translators we have confidence in.
Of course, Jordan Stump is one of the best and is right here at the university.

Our translations receive prominence in our seasonal catalogs, are presented at sales conferences, are taken to appropriate conferences, and are advertised. We also try to promote these books for course adoption. DS : Our literary translations have a hard time finding an audience in the U. Once a book does, though—usually through course adoption on the university level—they can do a steady but respectable amount of sales. There is no doubt that interest climbs with the Nobel Prize!
