CAT Event NEXT WEDNESDAY: Edward Gauvin in Conversation with Michael Holtmann

Please join us for our first event of 2016 next Wednesday, January 27. Translator Edward Gauvin will speak with Center for the Art of Translation Executive Director Michael Holtmann about his translation of Serge Brussolo’s The Deep Sea Diver’s Syndrome.

The pair will discuss Gauvin’s translation work and his experience with a novel about which Kirkus Reviews said “This reads like a dream-state version of a James Bond film.”

Serge Brussolo is acclaimed for his hybrids of science fiction and fantasy. The Deep Sea Diver’s Syndrome combines these elements in an exciting novel where mediums retrieve items from dream worlds that convert into valuable artworks in waking life. It is the author’s first novel to be translated into English.

Learn more about the author that Le Monde characterized as “a French J.G. Ballard, [writing] impeccably distilled stylized nightmares… ” Copies of the book will be for sale.
