This translation workshop is based on the novel Journée américaine and lead by local translator Jane Kuntz and French novelist/playwright Christine Montalbetti. It will be in French and English.


Innovative novelist, playwright, and professor of literature, Christine Montalbetti has written over a dozen works of fiction, three of which are published in translation by Dalkey Archive Press— Western (2009), Nothing but Waves and Wind (2017), and American Journey (forthcoming in 2018). In her storytelling, Montalbetti directly entices her audience into multifarious games of deferral, suspense, critique and reflection, measuring at every turn her readers' desires for gratification. Her most recent novel La vie est faite de ces toutes petites choses (P.O.L. 2016) recounts the space shuttle's final journey to the International Space Station.
