InTranslation: Selim Özdogan, Taking Hold

The brand new issue of The Brooklyn Rail's online-only InTranslation section features ten different texts, translated from Arabic, French, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese - oh and German.

The editors have cannily wedded art and literature, perhaps in an attempt to capture New Yorkers' interest in German art, by running my translation of Selim Özdogan's short story "Taking Hold" along with some of the pictures that inspired it.

I love it.
