Granta Audio: Vinicius Jatobá and Jethro Soutar

|

This week on the Granta Podcast, Best of Young Brazilian Novelist Vinicius Jatobá and his translator Jethro Soutar talk to online editor Ted Hodgkinson about the challenges of rendering a story described by Melanie Rae Thon as ‘mesmerizing, incantatory . . . an eighteen-page lyric poem, a single sentence spanning generations, a broken-open elegy vast enough to be a novel.’ They also discuss the role of China in the story and the peculiar and intimate bond between author and translator.

Jethro Soutar and Vinicius Jatobá in the Granta basement.

    Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time.
