On Thursday, December 8, translator Chris Andrews discussed his in-depth and wide-ranging work with Argentine maestro César Aira on the occasion of the publication of Aira’s Ema the Captive in Andrews’s translation. Andrews spoke with Two Lines Press Senior Editor Scott Esposito.
The author of over 80 books in his native Spanish, Aira has seen more than a dozen of them translated into English in recent years as his reputation has caught fire. Andrews will provide rare insight into Aira’s surreal and playful works, while also discussing the sizable challenges an author like Aira presents.
