In episode twenty-four, we discuss This Little Art by Kate Briggs.
What is it to translate another writer’s words? What is to consume a translation? Taking as her starting point her own translations work, Briggs explores these questions and so much more in her genre-bending novel length essay This Little Art.
Witty and thoughtful and with as many questions as answers, This Little Art is an original and layered discussion of the art of translation and perhaps of what it means to read and to write, too.
