Notes on Translation, Pedophiles, Festivals in New York and Obligatory Books.

Or a to do list:

Foreskin's Lament. A book about Orthodox upbringing and dealing with ghosts of religiosity in childhood.

*

Chris Morris and Paedogeddon. British dry humor about pedophiles. Always funny.

*

Cipher Journal is at Yale and does literary translation. Yale is confirmed to be a sad sad place.

*

Open Letter. The new publishers of books in translation from the good people at University of Rochester. Including Chad Post of the incredible Three Percent.

*

Pen World Voices Festival
in New York in May. Seems to be a mandatory stop. And fun, maybe too. And much good info for sure.

*

Bernard Levy. I heard that he has a castle in Morocco, a castle in somewhere else, a retreat in some other far flung globe spot. But decided to write his book on Darfur in a $1000 a night resort in the South of France. He is headlining at the Pen World Voices Festival.

*

I need to read the Unbearable Lightness of Being. And Wayne Kostenbaum. And more.

*

Michael Henry Heim looks like Lincoln and speaks nine languages and must be respected.

*

Love to fish. Blog more.
