Life in Translation – a new novel by Anthony Ferner

April 8, 2019

Life in Translation a new novel by Anthony Ferner is published today!

A literary translator looks back on the events and encounters that have shaped him in his peregrinations from London to Lima, Paris to Madrid, Leiden and back to London over three decades. He finds it hard to make sense of the opaque syntax of his own life and relationships. Can a chance meeting in a Dutch town with a key figure from his past bring some much-desired clarity?

Anthony Ferner’s debut novella Winegarden was published by Holland Park Press in 2015. His second novella Inside the Brain Box was published by Fairlight Books in 2018.

‘For someone like me with a special interest in the art of translating it is wonderful to publish a book in which a translator takes centre stage. The novel is full of vivid scenes and observations about translating and relationships,’ says publisher Bernadette Jansen op de Haar
