Three Percent #166: Women in Translation Month 2019

Chad and Tom drop a number of recommendations for Women in Translation month, some that they’ve read, some that they’re planning on reading. They also discuss possible infographics that Three Percent can produce over the course of the month (if you have any other suggestions, please email), and discuss Chad’s new plan to try and review 20 books without knowing the author, translator, publisher, title, etc. Plus: Tom has some words for people who don’t tip on coffee drinks.

Here’s a list of all the recommended titles:

The Remainder by Alia Trabucco Zerán and Sophie Hughes

Drive Your Plough Over the Bones of the Dead by Olga Tokarczuk and Antonia Lloyd-Jones

Will & Testament by Vigdis Hjorth and Charlotte Barslund

The Memory Police by Yoko Ogawa and Stephen Snyder

The Girl at the Door by Veronica Raimo and Stash Luczkiw

History. A Mess. by Sigrun Palsdóttir and Lytton Smith

Catherine Leroux’s Madame Victoria and The Party Wall, both translated by Lazer Lederhender

This week’s music is “Tethered” by Versing.
