2017 Albertine Prize

Suite for Barbara Loden was one of ten finalists for the Albertine Prize, a fine and worthwhile  initiative launched in 2017. There is something particularly piquant about the idea that a new prize promoting US-France cultural exchange was launched at a moment where both countries were poised to attempt to close both borders and minds.

The prize was voted by readers in the US who were able to vote twice: once during the first round from a selection of ten titles, including Suite for Barbara Loden, and again during a final round from a selection of 3 titles.
