Tonight: Spain’s Great Untranslated / Rabassa Alert

It’s not so often one has the chance to see and hear translation great Gregory Rabassa speaking in public, even in his hometown, NYC – but tonight you’ll have the chance as he joins an impressive line-up at McNally Jackson to celebrate the new Words Without Borders’s special issue for March 2013, Spain’s Great Untranslated. The issue includes work by a number of authors who aren’t yet know in English but should be: Fernando Aramburu, Cristina Fernández Cubas, Miquel de Palol, Ignacio Martínez de Pisón, Antonio Gamoneda, Pere Gimferrer, Berta Vias Mahou, César Antonio Molina, Juan Antonio Masoliver Ródenas, Olvido Garcia Valdés, Pedro Zarraluki, and Juan Eduardo Zúñiga.

The evening will feature authors Antonio Masoliver and Berta Vias Mahou, co-guest-editor Aurelio Major, Joshua Mandelbaum of WWoB, and translator Anne McLean keeping Rabassa company on stage.

McNally Jackson, 52 Prince Street, 7:00 p.m.
