National Translation Month 2019: Featured Excerpts from Russian, French, and Uzbek Literature in Translation
Happy National Translation Month! We’re celebrating all month on the blog—earlier this week, we published a guest post from translator Christopher Fort on the legacy of Uzbek writer Abdulhamid Sulaymon o’g’li Cho’lpon and his unfinished dilogy Night and Day.
Today, we’ve put together a sampler full of excerpts from four novels, a memoir, a book of essays, and a collection of short stories, translated from Russian, French, and Uzbek.
This September, we’re proud to announce several new works of literature in translation coming soon, as well as celebrate translations from our backlist. Check out new and forthcoming books featured in the sampler below, along with some highlights from our backlist. And be sure to follow along this month on Twitter, Facebook, and the blog as we continue to feature new works in translation!
