The Peninsula Parlour presents Pushcart Prize-nominee, and fiction editor at Able Muse, Nina Schuyler, discussing The Translator, in conversation with Lisen Stromberg. When renowned translator Hanne Schubert falls down a flight of stairs, she suffers from an unusual but real condition -- the loss of her native language. Speaking only Japanese, a language learned later in life, she leaves for Japan. There, to Hanne's shock, the Japanese novelist whose work she recently translated confronts her publicly for sabotaging his work. 5% of all sales made during this event will be donated to Abilities United.
