Hot off the Presses 

Wednesday, May 8 2013
The Center for the Art of Translation is without question one of the most impressive literary organization in the Bay Area, and recently it has been kicking things into high gear. On Wednesdays, it celebrate the launch of a new and expanded publishing arm, called Two Lines Press, with the release of not one but two titles: All My Friends by Marie NDiaye (the youngest person ever to be shortlisted for the International Booker Prize translated by Jordan Stump, and Hi, This Is Conchita by Granta “Best Young Spanish-Language Novelist” Santiago Roncagliolo (translated by Edith Grossman). Though all of the center’s events are stellar, if you haven’t been to one before this would be an excellent first; they have actors lined up to dramatize the authors’ work and $20 gets you admission and both books.

The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
