TMR 12.3 “Scenes from the Spectral Zone” [CARS ON FIRE]
On this episode of the Two Month Review, translator Robin Myers joins Chad and Brian to talk about her translation, Mexican and Argentine poetry, what was most challenging/liberating about the text, ALTA 2009, and much much more. Very insightful conversation for anyone interested in professional translators, or starting out in the field.
This week’s music is “Rebel Girl” by Bikini Kill.
If you’d prefer to watch the conversation, you can find it on YouTube along with all our past episodes. The next broadcast will be on June 24th. We’ll be talking about Sara Mesa/Katie Whittemore’s Four by Four, which is available in bookstores everywhere. (And as an audiobook via Tantor Media!)
Be sure to order Brian’s book, Joytime Killbox, which is now officially available at better bookstores everywhere thanks to BOA Editions. And you can get 20% off Four by Four by using the code 2MONTH at checkout. (Offer only good in the U.S., since we can’t ship overseas, but to be honest, we can’t ship right now! Order it from Bookshop.org.)
