“The essays in In Translation, exploring both the larger, complex questions of translation’s role and function in the world of literature and the more detailed, word by word dilemmas faced by every translator, are consistently stimulating, engaging, and eye-opening, not to speak of eloquent and occasionally even dramatic and/or funny — I came away from reading them with a host of new ideas and insights. This collection is a valuable addition to any library of books on translation or literature in general.” — Lydia Davis
