Great little write up Anna; I have a long list as well. Was the Ginsberg anthology I got you in 2000 a replacement for this other one?

It must have been! What a sweet second chapter (stanza? canto?).

Would love to hear tales about your lost books...

How do you remember who the translators were?

In some cases, because I was very aware of the translator (I chose their particular version of it, and/or was attuned to their translation choices), and in others, like "Nadja," I looked it up based on the cover I remember having.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
