This guide highlights the place of translation in our culture, encouraging awareness of the process of translating and the choices involved, making the translator more 'visible'. Concentrating on major writers and works, it covers translations out of many languages, from Greek to Hungarian, Korean to Turkish. For some works (e.g. Virgil's Aeneid) which have been much translated, the discussion is historical and critical, showing how translation has evolved over the centuries and bringing out the differences between versions. Elsewhere, with less familiar literatures, the Guide examines the extent to which translation has done justice to the range of work available.

Auf der Litrom-Bestenliste »Weltempfänger« Winter 2017/18 »Eins der 25 wichtigsten Bücher der Saison.« Spiegel-Online »Eins der 10 besten Bücher des Jahres.« New York Times Das Buch Die Khurana-Brüder schlendern zusammen mit ihrem Schulkameraden Mansoor Ahmed über einen gut besuchten Markt in Delhi. Ohne Vorwarnung kommt es zur Katastrophe: Neben ihnen explodiert eine Bombe – eine der vielen »kleinen« Bomben, die von der Welt kaum beachtet werden – und reißt die Khurana-Brüder in den Tod. Mansoor überlebt, doch der Bombenanschlag hinterlässt Spuren an Körper und Seele. Nach einem kurzen Aufenthalt an einer amerikanischen Universität kehrt Mansoor nach Delhi zurück, wo seine Suche nach einem Platz im Leben immer radikalere Formen annimmt ... Eng verwoben mit der Geschichte der Familien Khurana und Ahmed ist die des kaschmirischen Bombenbauers Shockie, der bereit ist, sein Leben für die Unabhängigkeit seines Vaterlands zu opfern. Karan Mahajans Roman ist außergewöhnlich komponiert: Er beginnt buchstäblich mit dem großen Knall – und zeichnet dann die vielen Druckwellen nach, die die Bombenexplosion bei allen Beteiligten ausgelöst hat: Welche Auswirkungen hat ein solcher Terrorakt auf die Betroffenen? Auf die Angehörigen? Auf die Gesellschaft? Wie werden Menschen zu Terroristen? Mahajan nähert sich differenziert, originell und nicht ohne Humor einigen der wichtigsten Fragen unserer Zeit. Warum es uns gefällt Karan Mahajan schreibt lebendig und originell über die Auswirkungen des Terrorismus auf Opfer und Täter. Einer der relevantesten literarischen Beiträge zu einem der wichtigsten Themen unserer Zeit. Pressestimmen Deutschland (Auswahl) »Schonungslos und voller Mitgefühl porträtiert Karan Mahajan einen Bombenanschlag in Delhi ... Der Autor zeichnet seine Bilder mit enormer sprachlicher Präzision und scharfsinnigem Witz.» Jana Volkmann, Buchkultur »Karan Mahajans Roman ist sprachgewaltig, aufwühlend und spannend ...« Jörg E. Mayer, Deutschlandfunk »Mahajan stellt einen Link her zwischen allen, die mit so einem Anschlag zu tun haben. Die Wirkung ist erstaunlich: Der Terror verliert Glanz und Gloria seines demonstrativen Nihilismus, er steht nackt da und stumm in seiner ganzen Erbärmlichkeit – sein Schrecken verpufft.« Ulrich Noller, WDR »Eine bestechende Erkundung über die Natur der Bombe ... « Claudia Kramatschek, NZZ »Karan Mahajan erzählt bewundernswert real von den Auswirkungen eines Anschlags aus Sicht von Opfern und Tätern.« NDR
