Angel wins Rossica Prize

We announce with great pride that Angela Livingstone has been awarded the prestigious Rossica Translation Prize 2014 for her translation of Marina Tsvetaeva’s verse drama Phaedra: with ‘New Year’s Letter’ and other long poems, published by Angel Classics in 2012. Selected Poems by Vladislav Khodasevich, translated by Peter Daniels, was a second Angel title on the shortlist of five, the first time in the 10-year history of the prize that more than one book from the same publisher has been shortlisted.

New Angel title praised in TLS

Konstantinos Theotokis
Slaves in their Chains

Slaves in their Chains condenses more than fifty years of inexorable social change that began with the union of the Ionian Islands with Greece in 1864. This powerful novel, fluently and compellingly rendered into English for the first time, deserves to be much better known.

‘I am delighted that this last and most ambitious novel by one of modern Greece’s leading and most interesting authors is appearing in English.’

– Peter Mackridge, Emeritus Professor of Modern Greek, University of Oxford
