Three Percent #20: Everyone in the World Writes in English
In this week’s podcast, Tom and I talk about the strange cases of books/authors that most people don’t think of as having been translated. (Not to give away too much, but we start with Haruki Murakami.) From there, we talk about which authors are most associated with particular countries, the pros and cons of shelving authors by country, and how book discovery does (and might not) work.
And shockingly, we didn’t talk about baseball or the St. Louis Cardinals at all. Seriously.
This week’s music is “Got it All [This Can’t Be Living Now]”: by the oddly punctuated Portugal. The Man.
