If you're not a bookseller or librarian in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon or Washington, you may have missed out on this interview between George Carroll and myself at NW Book Lovers. And wouldn't that be a shame.
Also, don't forget International Translation Day on Sunday! I expect you to dress up as Saint Jerome of Stridonian, the patron saint of translators and beard-wearers. In London you can attend an event with Saint Anthea Bell and Saint Daniel Hahn - today! - at the London Review Bookshop. And the Free Word Centre is having a full-day extravaganza on 5 October. Plenty to choose from in Germany too, including - gosh! - Lucy Renner-Jones, Will Firth, Alistair Noon and myself reading translations from German, Russian and Montenegrin at Shakespeare and Sons on Sunday, 7 p.m. Beard-wearers get in free.*
*As does everybody else.
