Chad Post, writing at Three Percent about selection bias in lists of 'best translations' (“It’s like record shop employees telling you what’s cool.” [Tom Roberge]):
So, as a list-maker, you have the non-genre specific, gigantic works of Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, even Nabokov and Camus on one hand, and the mostly contemporary crime-fiction writing by women on the other. This is not a good mixture.
