I’ve spent a lot of time in various capacities at the PEN American Center over the past few years, most recently serving as Chair of the Translation Committee. This year I’ve also been guest blogging on the PEN blog The Daily PEN American. And now I’ve been interviewed for the very same blog by Betsy Ribble. The interview just went live, so here’s a link to it. I’m not sure how this happened, but somehow I wound up talking to her about the relationship between procrastination and multi-tasking. It must be my favorite topic. We also talk about the Gotthelf book I’m currently working on, and about translation as writing.
