Essays Two: On Proust, Translation, Foreign Languages, and the City of Arles

by Lydia Davis Author

This immense collection comes from Lydia Davis, the so-called “magician of self-consciousness,” “best prose stylist in America," and winner of the Man Booker Prize. This edition collects her essays, an extended immersion in the city of Arles. and her thoughts on the art of translation, namely, the experience of translating heavyweights such as Proust, Flaubert, and Michel Leiris. She also discusses the plusses and minuses of learning a foreign language through reading.
