Posthumous NBCC Award Nomination for Politkovskaya

I was surprised – very pleasantly! – to learn that the National Book Critics Circle nominated A Russian Diary, written by journalist Anna Politkovskaya and translated by Arch Tait, for its autobiography award.

Tait’s Web site contains pages about Politkovskaya books that he translated: Russian Diary and Putin’s Russia. The Putin’s Russia page includes links to tributes to Politkovskaya, who was murdered on October 7, 2006, in her Moscow apartment building.
