French author Alice Zeniter and her translator, Frank Wynne, have won the world’s most lucrative prize for a novel published in English.

The Dublin Literary Award confers upon The Art of Losing not just glory, but also €100,000 (about $106,800).

Zeniter receives €75,000 (about $80,100) of that, while Wynne, who was part of 2002's winning writer-translator team, takes home the remainder.

Libraries around the world nominate the contenders; Zeniter and Wynne can thank Bibliothèque publique d’information, in the Pompidou Centre, Paris.

You can read praise for The Art of Losing, which follows three generations of an Algerian family starting in the 1950s, and how its winners reacted in the Irish Times.
