For her work at One Story, Hannah has been awarded the 2009 PEN/Nora Magid Award, which “honors a magazine editor whose high literary standards and taste have, throughout his or her career, contributed significantly to the excellence of the publication they edit.” In his introduction, judge Richard Nash called Hannah “the princess Leia of American short fiction.” To find out more, read this blog post of the event at Critical Mass. But here’s what judges Richard Nash, T. Cooper and Walter Kirn had to say:
“For inventing a format so perfect it now seems self-evident; for developing an audience for the short story so robust it makes the entire library publishing community just that little bit more dynamic; for applying the entrepreneurial mode to nonprofit publishing with grace and judgment; for a taste so unimpeachable, yet palpable, we find nary a dissenter in the community, and no dissenter amongst us three jurors, we unanimously award Hannah Tinti the PEN/Nora Magid Award.”
A new interview with Hannah about The Good Thief is now up at Bookslut.
The Good Thief has been published in Germany! Go here to read an excerpt or get a copy of the book in translation.
