I heard this week that I've been given the Stora Pris (main prize) of Finlands Svenska Författareförening (the Finland-Swedish Writers' Association), so will be going to Helsinki for the association's 87th birthday celebration on 18 March, where the award will be made. It's a great honour for me. I'm very pleased, as I've been translating Finland-Swedish poetry and fiction for more than 30 years, and this is a nice way of expressing a mutual greeting.
