Tonight tonight! Harry Mathews and Marie Chaix

Posting from the road, sorry about the format, but this duo is not to be missed! I heard HM read in London  years ago, and it was brilliant. He and Chaix are both writer/translators who translate each others’ work. Oh, and Mathews was the first official English-language member of Oulipo!
