Sebald Podcast …en français
Table-ronde W. G. Sebald /Traduire…. a recent radio program about W.G. Sebald is currently available as a podcast on the Radio France website. The program, which aired March 14, 2009, is a discussion between two French translators, Christophe Claro and Bernard Hoepffner. Claro has translated a number of contemporary American writers, including William H. Gass, William T. Vollman, and Thomas Pynchon. Hoepffner has translated fiction by Robert Coover, Mark Twain, Gilbert Sorrentino, and many others.
(I’m told that this interview will be moved to a Radio France archive site after a while. So if the link stops working, please leave me a comment and I’ll find and post the proper archival link.) Listening to the program requires RealNetworks RealPlayer.
There’s also a nice interview with Claro primarily about translation at The Quarterly Conversation.
