We’ve got the Brexit Blues here on Literary Friction, so for this show we’re celebrating something that bridges borders rather than closes them: literary translation. We’ve deviated slightly from our usual format to bring you not one but three interviews around the theme: we'll be talking to Spanish writer Milena Busquets, author of This Too Shall Pass, which has been translated into 27 different languages; literary translator Deborah Smith, who translates from Korean into English and is also the founder of Tilted Axis Press, a not-for-profit outfit dedicated to bringing marginal international work into the mainstream; and Meike Ziervogel, German novelist and founder of Peirene Press, which focusses on short translated European fiction. Join us as we hear from these brilliant writers, and just in time to celebrate Women In Translation month, too.
