MAY 6TH: Join us to celebrate Daniel Hahn's Catching Fire: A Translation Diary, and Hahn's translation of Never Did the Fire by Diamela Eltit

In Catching Fire, the translation of Diamela Eltit's Never Did the Fire unfolds in real time as a conversation between works of art, illuminating both in the process. The problems and pleasures of conveying literature into another language—what happens when you meet a pun? a double entendre?—are met by translator Daniel Hahn's humor, deftness, and deep appreciation for what sets Eltit's work apart, and his evolving understanding of what this particular novel is trying to do.
