NEW YORK (AP) - A novel by Romanian-born German Nobel laureate Herta Muller (hehr-TAH' MYOO'-lur) is among the finalists for prizes given for best English language translations of fiction and poetry.

Muller's "The Hunger Angel" was translated from German by Philip Boehm (BOH'-him) and has been nominated for a Best Translated Book Award.

Ten fiction works and six poetry books were announced Wednesday by Three Percent, a center for international literature that's based at the University of Rochester in New York. Winning authors and translators each receive $5,000, prize money donated by Amazon.com. Winners will be announced next month.

Other fiction nominees include Argentine Sergio Chejfec's (SHAY'-fekz) "The Planets," translated from Spanish by Heather Cleary. In poetry, finalists include Emmanuel Hocquard's (oh-KARDZ') "The Invention of Glass," translated from French by Cole Swenson and Rod Smith.
