Apologies, Prize, etc.

I apologize for my absence these past two days. I was in New York to accept the French-American Foundation Translation Award. I shared this year's nonfiction prize with Richard Howard. So I think you'll grant that I had a good excuse.

Meanwhile, Europe seems to have moved a step closer to the brink, and I'm feeling quite glum about the prospects for a good outcome. More tomorrow.
