Today was the official publication date of my translation of Ursula Poznanski’s Five, published by Vintage Books. It’s a truly chilling read and gave me a few sleepless nights as I worked on it through the cold London winter. Very happy to see the finished article, albeit in photos and not yet in my hands. I hear that Harvill have planted shrink-wrapped five copies around London today, a treasure hunt a lot less grisly than the one in the book itself, and with the prize of a dinner for two at Clerkenwell’s Dans Le Noir. I’m very grateful to the author for her comments and guidance, and hope it is warmly received by readers in the English-language world!
