A master of short fiction, Antonio Tabucchi won the Prix Medicis tranger for Indian Nocturne, the Italian PEN Prize for Requiem- A Hallucination, the Aristeion European Literature Prize for Pereira Declares, and was named a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the French Government. Together with his wife, Maria Jose de Lancastre, Tabucchi translated much of the work of Fernando Pessoa into Italian. Tabucchi's works include The Flying Creature of Fra Angelico, The Woman of Porto Pim, and Little Misunderstandings of No Importance (all translated by Tim Parks), Tristano Dies and For Isabel- A Mandala (both translated by Elizabeth Harris, recipient of the National Translation Award), and Time Ages in a Hurry (translated by Martha Cooley and Antonio Romani).
