I hear that Barbara Stok’s Vincent, which I translated for SelfMadeHero in the UK, is doing well and has received enthusiastic reviews in the TLS and the Guardian. That’s great news! I really admire Barbara’s work and would love to see some of her autobiographical stories translated into English, too. She’s witty, honest, and easy to relate to. Her recent anthology contains episodes from her life from the age of 20-ish to 40-ish, dealing with relationships, jobs, disappointment, and a whole range of emotions. It’s a book that deserves a wide audience, as her experiences are so very familiar, and her reflections, both light-hearted and serious, are sure to strike a chord with many readers.
