Literary Translation with Rothfuss

Patrick Rothfuss, best-selling epic fantasy author, has a brilliant post on what goes on behind the scenes in literary translation. Let’s just say, if I weren’t a French-to-English translator and I’d gotten the bid to translate his books, I would be in heaven.  He is an amazingly gracious and considerate author to work for, even if his prose would be excruciatingly hard to translate.

I figure directing you to a post by a well-loved author is much better than your hearing me ramble on about my progress in my literary translation project. *amused*
