An Interview with Glauser's translator

Detectives Beyond Borders has the first part of an interview with Mike Mitchell, who has translated Swiss author Friedrich Glauser's work into English for Bitter Lemon Press. Glauser is an interesting author, and there's very little information about him available in English, so it's worth a look if you're interested in the author, or the problems that arise in translating fiction.

Thanks for the kind mnetion. Yes, the task of translating crime fiction is immensely interesting. I refer you and your readers to this fascinating collection of interviews on the subject, to which I've linked several times on my blog. But more immediately important is for everyone who reads this to make themselves familiar with Glauser!
