To kick off Women in Translation Month , let me recommend 5 fabulous reads that I’d love others to discover for themselves. Listed in alphabetical order of author surname. Links to my original reviews.
Jenny Erpenbeck – Visitation (Translated from German by Susan Bernofsky)
Elena Ferrante – My Brilliant Friend (Translated from Italian by Ann Goldstein)
Yoko Ogawa – Revenge (Translated from Japanese by Stephen Synder)
Clara Sánchez – The Scent of Lemon Leaves (Translated from Spanish by Julie Wark)
Teresa Solana – A Not So Perfect Crime (Translated from Catalan by Peter Bush)
Unfortunately I’m unable to support this event as I’d like, as my August is already hectic (though in a good way). Still I’ll no doubt keep track of my feed reader and add exponentially to my wishlist …. Have fun!
