Memories and taxes are unavoidable. For some reason, they made it together into the same letter. Memories can be a good burden, a "return" of something, raw material for a story and the way to find home. In this letter I talk about Truman Capote's wonderful short story "A Christmas Memory" and share a small excerpt from a short story of mine.
This letter is about the Brontës and Brighton with detours in the expat life and some translation and writing updates. To view it click here.
It's been a great and unique summer. My 2nd newsletter is out and it features among others a brief review of one of Jhumpa Lahiri's short stories (Interpreter of Maladies), Napoleon, camp beds and technical translation.
I have just sent out my first newsletter. Topics include GPDR (of course), thoughts about the minimum rate for transcreation work, a meeting with translators and more. To subscribe scroll down, enter your email and hit "Subscribe to Newsletter".
Until next time!
I send out a monthly newsletter on a variety of topics such as books I read, translation news, updates on my writing process and more. This isn't your typical newsletter full of links promoting my business (I want my work to do the promotion for me) but it's more like a letter. The world seen through my own lens. Welcome aboard.
