Women in translation Month is coming to a close. And, so far, we’ve delved into the poetry of women from East Asia and Russia, time-traveled to Japan’s Heian court, and engrossed ourselves in the gossip of Shanghai. This week, we’re exploring the historical trauma of World War II and the collapse of the Soviet Union through Margarita Khemlin’s Klotsvog and Olga Slavnikova’s The Man Who Couldn’t Die.
Check back this week to read guest posts by translators Lisa Hayden and Marian Schwartz, and for exclusive excerpts from each book. In the meantime, take a moment to enter our drawing for a chance to win one of this week’s featured titles.
