Three Percent #168: The 6% Improvement
On this episode, Chad shares some interesting data about the number of books by women in translation before and after the creation of Women in Translation Month, Tom talks about the most recent Amazon controversy, they breakdown the National Translation Award for Prose Longlist (they’ll talk poetry in a future episode), and Chad shows that libraries are using a digital information system that’s less user-friendly than Edelweiss+.
(They also mention a post Chad wrote on Tanizaki’s In Black and White, which turns out to be way way funnier than one would expect.)
Also: Use the code PREORDER before midnight on September 15th to get 40% off of all nine of these forthcoming Open Letter titles.
This week’s music is “Night Owl” by Olivia Jean.
