Olga and Jennifer were joint winners of the prize for the translated version of Olga’s book Bieguni (Flights) and we caught up with them two days after their win to discuss the whirlwind of literary prize-winning, composing constellation novels, suppressing your first published book, and the challenges of translating fiction.
