Jen Calleja & Sophie Hughes

Careful listening, creative ventriloquism, superb prose style: what are the key qualities of a successful translation? Two writers shortlisted for this year’s Man Booker International Prize discuss their work with Prize judge and fellow translator Maureen Freely. Jen Calleja worked with Marion Poschmann on The Pine Islands and Sophie Hughes imagined Alia Trabucco Zerán’s The Remainder into its English version.
