Frank Perry


Frank Perry has translated many of Sweden’s leading writers. His work has won the Swedish Academy prize for the introduction of Swedish literature abroad, the prize of the Writers Guild of Sweden for drama translation and in 2017 his translation of Lina Wolff’s Bret Easton Ellis and the Other Dogs was awarded the prestigious  Oxford Weidenfeld Translation prize. From 2016 to 2018 viewers both in the UK and globally have been watching his English-language versions of Hans Rosenfeldt’s scripts for the award-winning ITV series Marcella – with another series to come in 2019. Frank had three book translations published on the same day in late 2018: his critically acclaimed version of Caterina Pascual Söderbaum’s literary masterpiece The Oblique Place; Axel Lidén’s sublime On Sheep: Diary of A Swedish Shepherd and Hans Hayden’s magisterial work Modernism as Institution in the Philosophy of Art History.
