New Boldtype

The October issue of Boldtype is devoted to works in translation. Featured books include Orhan Pamuk’s Snow, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha’s Dictee, Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return, and one of my very favourite books — Jose Saramago’s Blindness.

The current issue also profiles the online magazine Words Without Borders. According to their website “50% of all the books in translation now published worldwide are translated from English, but only 6% are translated into English.”
