Literary roundup: Readux Series 2 launch, Marian Schwartz

Today’s Authors & Translators featured translator is the celebrated Marian Schwartz (and her authors – we shouldn’t forget the authors, after all) with a fascinating interview. Among other things, she discusses her soon to be published version of Anna Karenina (August 2014) and the intimacy of being able to work personally with an author, something she clearly cherishes having been able to do with Nina Berberova before the author’s death in 1993. She also says that the book she would most like to translate is Olga Slavnikova’s The Man Who Couldn’t Die. Publishers, are you listening?
