A story by J.M.A Bieheuvel

€ 15.00

This is a book about bookmaking, about writing and telling stories, and about how these come to be.

This publication is (also) about translation; it features a translation of a story by Dutch writer J.M.A. Biesheuvel. The translated story is now titled Journey Through My Room which does not sound quite as good as its original Dutch title Reis Door Mijn Kamer. In translation literalness is often sacrified for the sake of preserving melody and rhyme. But in fact, any translation that does not sound like a translation is bound to be inexact.I tried to preserve the voice of the original.
