Third Place Books is thrilled to partner with Community Bookstore (Brooklyn) and the Transnational Literature Series at Brookline Booksmith (Boston) to present translators Emma Ramadan and Olivia Baes, discussing a new translation of Marguerite Duras with poet, essayist, and critic Elisa Gabbert.
Co-translated by Ramadan and Baes, The Easy Life is Marguerite Duras's novel about a young woman's existential breakdown in the deceptively peaceful French countryside. An extraordinary examination of a young woman’s estrangement from the world that only Marguerite Duras could have written, The Easy Life is a work of unsettling beauty and insight, and a bold, spellbinding journey into the depths of the human heart.
