Are you taking part? Less than a third of literary translations published in the UK are by women, and these win fewer prizes than translated works by men. In August, there is a focus on celebrating the women who do get translated, and also promoting the translators and publishers behind them. . I read Danish book, New Passengers yesterday (review soon) and hope to read Grove (a German novel of grief, love and landscapes) and Minor Detail (Palestinian exploration of dispossession, life under occupation and disempowerment) this month as well. This stack contains a mixture of women in translation books that I’ve accumulated from second hand bookshops. Apart from Anne Frank, which was a gift from my mum. I read this copy when I was eleven, and my daughter has just asked to read it. 😊 . 📸 Full disclosure, I never ever drink black coffee, and am absolutely rubbish at wearing my reading glasses! 👓😁 . . . womenintranslationmonth womenintranslation translation translatedliterature unitedbookstagram bookstoread guardianbooks> > A post shared by Silver Linings and Pages (@silverliningsandpages) on Aug 2, 2020 at 11:29am PDT
