Join award winning author Zhang Ling, translator Shelly Bryant, and editor Liza Darnton as they discuss the processes behind the anticipated English translation, A Single Swallow; an epic that explores relationships, ideals and identities amidst the horrors of World War II.
Listen to them share how they translate the cultural, emotional and linguistic nuances from the original work for their English readers without losing the essence of the original story.
This session is co-presented with Tender Leaves Translation.
Zhang Ling’s A Single Swallow can be purchased here.
