Review: Happy are the Happy by Yasmina Reza · Readings.com.au

Happy are the Happy by Yasmina Reza | The Times

"Indeed, Turle is particularly good on the physicality of being a translator, the terrible slowness of the process as compared with reading, one’s longing to be unchained from one’s computer and the equal desire to keep working. According to Turle, all translators are, at one time or another, diplomats, actors or spies."

—We don’t often stop to think about the art of literary translation, but translator Margaret Jull Costa examines the field in her Times Literary Supplement essay on The Cahiers Series. “What these fascinating Cahiers offer is an insight into what literary translators actually do, as well as fuel for the endless debate about what we mean when we talk about ‘faithful’ translation.” (via millionsmillions)

"

Nowadays, the whole village has converted to tap water, and the well has been covered up. But whenever I go home, I lift the cover and peek inside. It’s still full of water. It makes me happy each time I see it. It’s reassuring to know that the first water I ever tasted has not dried up.



I love you as much as looking into that well.

"

—Kyung-Sook Shin’s I’ll Be Right There
