Two Voices Salon with Open Letter Books' Chad Post
We'll talk with publisher Chad Post about the latest book in translation from Chinese writer Can Xue, which Flavorwire calls "one of the most raved-about works of translated fiction this year.”
Can Xue is the pseudonym of Chinese writer Deng Xiaohoa, who is the author of six novels and numerous novellas and short stories, as well as several commentaries. Born in 1953 to a family that suffered persecution in anti-rightist campaigns and the Cultural Revolution, she began writing in 1983 and has become known for her abstract style and unconventional narrative form.
Chad Post is the publisher of Open Letter Books, a non-profit literary translation press based at the University of Rochester. He also oversees the annual Best Translated Book Awards. Open Letter will publish Can Xue's Frontier in March 2017.
As always, we'll discuss the latest translation and publishing news and what we're reading now. Come prepared to join the conversation!
