The translator, translated

I’ve been gratified beyond measure by the attention in Brazil to my translation of a Brazilian god, including letters from academics and journalists starting nerdy discussions with me on fine points–my happy place! An unexpected development has been media coverage there: my article on Graciliano and the Plague and my interview with the brilliant Miguel Conde, available in English elsewhere on this site, have both been translated into Portuguese and published in Brazil. Translation already feels more interactive and social than writing; this reception has made it infinitely more so.
