Opposites attract? Not so much in the case of Jennifer Croft and Boris Dralyuk.

Both members of this couple are accomplished literary translators ... and, in fact, they're both up for the National Book Critics Circle's Greg Barrios Book in Translation Prize.

Croft is in the running for her work on The Books of Jacob by Olga Tokarczuk; Dralyuk, for translating Grey Bees by Andrey Kurkov.

And if you already admired their accomplishments — they're raising twins.

Literary Hub's Jonny Diamond got to chat with Croft and Dralyuk about what it's like to both be award contenders, parents, and literary translators (all at the same time).
