Alison Watts

Profile: Alison Watts is an Australian-born Japanese to English translator and long time resident of Japan. A life-changing illness made her realise that life was short and she should concentrate on what she enjoys doing most. Therefore, after a long career in commercial translation, she switched to full-time literary translation in 2016. She has translated various short stories and a travel memoir in the past (see her website), but her first novel translation since the transition, Sweet Bean Paste by Durian Sukegawa, will be released by Oneworld Publications in October 2017.
