Jean Ferry’s Long Tail

February 4th, 2016 § 0 comments

Thanks to Ian Baran, librarian and blogger at the New York Public Library, my 2013 translation of Jean Ferry’s Surrealist-tinged tales is back in the news, part of a handful of titles profiled in two articles on Wakefield Press, that valiant publisher of Euro-obscurities based in Boston. In this “exceptional pocket book of 24 or so stories,” Baran says, “Jean Ferry has won over the everyday with extraordinary grace.”

On a side note: to date, Jean Ferry’s collection The Conductor and Other Tales is the only book where I’ve received royalties–not just contractually promised, mind you, but actually paid. For that I have my editor and publisher Marc Lowenthal to thank.
