@jakeriley This was in 1995 or 1996: TO FLY PEGASUS and PEGASUS IN FLIGHT by Anne McCaffrey from this new online bookstore called Amazon. I wonder if I was their first ever Korean customer 😆 “Wow! I can order books internationally OVER THE INTERNET!!!”

@MarinaSofia8 My *controversial opinion* of him that I’ve held since middle school is that he’s massively overrated because of his public image. If people wanted to study his style, they should just read Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio.

@yilinwriter This is such an extraordinarily egregious case of copyright violation of a translator's work that I wonder if the TA might consider a statement? @DeWald_Rebecca @clarehannahmary @sawadhussain @vineet_uk @rosie_hedger @tallnicky @shauntranslates @rolandglasser @ioagiles

THE END OF AUGUST by @yu_miri_0622 X @wrongsreversed is my most anticipated translation of 2023, a marathon narrative told in fleet-footed prose of the tragedies and triumphs of the Korean nation under Japanese colonialism.

@ToTheHappyNone PLAYING IN THE DARK by Toni Morrison—especially because I was skeptical about it at first but its ideas keep coming back to me. IN THE WAKE by Christina Sharpe has a lot of big fans, which includes me!

@paceamorelibri When students ask me this question, I usually recommend RUNAWAY by Alice Munro (it looks less daunting than her selected stories)
