A Life on Paper at Readercon

Story by story, with the greatest insight and detail, Damian Kelleher has read and reviewed his way through Georges-Olivier Châteaureynaud’s A Life on Paper. Liveblogging a book! Who’d’ve thought? They used to call it a reading diary, I think. Kelleher’s reviews are thoughtful, wide-ranging in their references, and sometimes consider the individual works from angles new to me, which is why I put the collection out in the world in the first place: to start conversations. Translators pride themselves on going through a book with the finest of combs, but Kelleher regularly turns up surprising bits. His reading of “Écorcheville” is the best discussion of that story I’ve ever come across.

Where am I?
