Daniel Sada Tribute

Last fall I had the great pleausre of participating in a tribute to the Mexican writer Daniel Sada alongside his English translator, Katie Silver, and her editor, Ethan Nosowsky. The audio of that event is now online.

Some fascinating things were said by the both of them about the publishing and translation of Sada’s works, as well as about his status in Mexico and some of hs untranslated books. During the event we discussed Almost Never, translated by Katie and published by Ethan a few years ago with Graywolf, and One Out of Two, published by both of them late last year.
