Lydia Davis
Proust, Blanchot and a Woman in Red

With translations by the author

Following her acclaimed translation of Swann’s Way, Lydia Davis offers a partial alphabet of Proust translation problems – and their solutions. She muses on the near-impossibility of summarising works by Maurice Blanchot, and ends with a group of short narratives that explore the space between dream and waking reality. This cahier is a wondrous adventure into the perils and delights of translating, of reading – and of dreaming.
