David Bellos: Is That a Fish in Your Ear? (2011)

I think there’s a tendency in academic writing to equal cryptic with good. Well, this is proof that an insightful, interesting, academic book can be written in a clear, understandable language – and even be entertaining. It covers most aspects of the art and craft of translation, and it is more thorough and well-argued than most books on translation I’ve read.

The “trailer” below conveys only a little bit of the scope of the book, but if you find it interesting, you’ll certainly enjoy the book.
