Jon on Diéz TV, 17 10 14
For those who understand the Spanish language, Diéz Television, the local station in Úbeda, where the Press does its work, interviewed Jon about his literary project a few days ago, as well as the story of his departure from Britain and decision to settle in this rural area of north-eastern Andalusia.
The video appears, along with last year’s short film on Haroldo Conti and the novel Sudeste [South-East in Jon’s translation], on the Immigrant Press YouTube channel, here.
Jon has a dedicated website here.
Haroldo Conti makes it into the top five!
We’re very happy to see that Haroldo Conti‘s classic novel of the Paraná Delta – South East, which we published in late 2013 as the first volume on our Library of Translation shelf – has been included in London’s Latino Life magazine’s Spring Guide 2014 as one of the top five items on its cultural Hot List (see page 5)
