Opening act: David Di Iorio
We're delighted to be sharing Dimitri with The New Quarterly's Wild Writers Festival where he will be featured as part of panel discussions on Publishing and on Translation.
Dimitri Nasrallah has been the editor for Véhicule Press's fiction imprint, Esplanade Books, since 2013. In that time he has initiated a new translation program, working with well-known authors such as Neil Smith and Claire Holden Rothman to translate new Quebecois fiction for Canadian readers. The initiative has resulted in Esplanade's first-ever nomination for a Governor General's Literary Award. Nasrallah is the author of the novels Niko (2011, winner of the Hugh MacLennan Prize for Fiction) and Blackbodying (2005, winner of the McAuslan First Book Award). His translation of Éric Plamondon's Hungary-Hollywood Express was published this year.
