Three Percent #100: We Appreciate You

So, we actually made it to our 100th episode! To celebrate, this week Tom and Chad took questions from all our listeners, leading to discussions about how many books we each read (and how many are in translation), what one thing all translators should know, how censorship plays into our publishing decision, and much more. Of course, it ends with raves and rants—including a rant about rants—and is filled with other interesting side tangents.

Here’s a list of all the books we talked about on this episode (although maybe not in this order):

Apocalypse Baby by Virginie Despentes
Mexico: The Great Theft by Carmen Boullosa
Case Histories by Kate Atkinson
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
Delirium by Laura Restrepo
Oryx & Crake by Margaret Atwood
The End of Days by Jenny Erpenbeck
The Last Lover by Can Xue
Faces in the Crowd by Valeria Luiselli
The Story of My Teeth by Valeria Luiselli
By Night in Chile by Roberto Bolaño
That Smell by Sonallah Ibrahim
Ulysses by James Joyce
Finnegans Wake by James Joyce
