In Conversation with Edith Grossman

 Edith Grossman is the reason you've read Gabriel García Márquez' Love in the Time of Cholera and the historic novel about the final months of Simón Bolívar, The General in his Labyrinth. Catch this special episode, broadcast in conjunction with World Book Day, where our host Umapagan Ampikaipakan speaks to one of the most active and competent translators of Latin American literature in the world today about her life's work; her rendition of  Miguel Cervantes’ Don Quixote – widely regarded as the definitive translation of our times – and the state of literary translation today.
