Short stories, extracts, anthologies

Sonofabook #2 from CB Editions

My translation of an extended extract from Gabrielle Wittkop’s posthumous work Chaque Jour est un arbre qui tombe (‘Each Day is Tree That Falls’ – Gallimard/Folio, 2006) is published in Sonofabook #2 from CB Editions, guest edited by Sophie Lewis. As rich, strange and darkly beautiful as anything in Wittkop’s writing. Great to see it in print!
