An in-depth interview with Juliet Winters Carpenter, talking about her experience translating Minae Mizumura’s award-winning book A True Novel, is now up on the SWET website.
The English version of A True Novel has received many positive reviews and won the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Award’s Grand Prize in Fiction. The story explores growing up in various Japan-related backgrounds and time periods, and it conveys the many forms that love can take. Young adults will find this an interesting read as it shows them how life can take many different paths.
Carpenter will be appearing at the SCBWI Japan Translation Day 2014 on Saturday, October 18, in Yokohama to talk about how to translate voice. She will also hold a translation workshop. It promises to be an exciting and productive event, so please come along. More details here.
