The Waterstones Podcast - Translation

Posted on 1st May 2020 by Mark Skinner

Your chance to hear authors going beyond the book to talk about the themes and ideas that obsess us all.

Translation

After bringing the best of world TV to UK screens through Walter Presents, Walter Iuzzolino is now doing the same with literature in conjunction with Pushkin Press. We spoke to him from lockdown in London about why it's so important to get cultural input from around the globe and to find out more about the first book in the series with translator Sam Taylor. Taylor speaks to us from his home in the US to help us understand more about the process of translating from one language to another.
