Quotation of the Week

22nd March

To be a translator was to be a shadow, and if you were lucky, no one noticed you until your work was done, if at all. In that, the translatorís work was like that of the detective: You stayed one step behind the one who did it, the original author, gathering clues and collecting meanings, until you had the written body of evidence. Then you wove the words into a testimony of other words that created a new and watertight narrative.

Barbara Wilson, Love Dies Twice (2022)
