Anna and Annie discuss Women in Translation Month, started by Meytal Radzinski and now a global event (yes, it was in August but we're celebrating it year-round ;) ). In keeping with our theme, Elena Ferrante has a new book coming out in November, translated by Ann Goldstein.
Our book of the week is Our Life in the Forest by Marie Darrieussecq, translated by Penny Hueston. Darrieussecq is hugely successful in France and we can see why. We loved this short novel set in the near future, with a funny, blunt narrator, spare writing and much to think about. Recommended!
Next week, Anna and Amanda will be reading The Pillars by Peter Polites.
