Three Percent #173: The Poetry in Translation Episode
Anastasia Nikolis (poetry editor for Open Letter Books) and Emma Ramadan (translator, co-owner of Riffraaff) join Chad and Tom to breakdown ALTA 42, talk about poetry in translation, and go on a handful of minor rants—and one major one. (Thanks, Emma!) The Sarah Dessen controversy pops up, as does this article about AmazonCrossing, and LitHub’s Best Translated Novels of the Decade.

Great podcast, absolutely mesmerizing. Although now I feel sad about sending my grandma a Christmas present via Amazon.
