Teaching Translation: Natasha Wimmer

Exchanges launches a new interview series with translators who also teach by speaking with Natasha Wimmer, the Spanish-English translator best known for work on Roberto Bolaño's Savage Detectives and 2666.

Exchanges is the journal of literary translation edited by students in the University of Iowa's MFA Program in Literary Translation.

(feat.) Conversación en Princeton con Rubén Gallo

In the fall of 2015, Nobel laureate Mario Vargas Llosa co-taught a small seminar with Princeton professor Rubén Gallo. The class read a number of Vargas Llosa's major novels and discussed topics ranging from Peruvian politics to translation. Conversación en Princeton, which was published by Rubén Gallo with Alfaguara (Penguin Random House), is a record of some of those conversations, and a look into the mind of Peru's most celebrated writer.
