Today WWB launches its new series Close-Up: An Experiment in Reviewing Translation, a response to the dearth of book reviews that take translators and translation into account. In the conversation below, reviewers Lily Meyer and Mona Kareem talk with WWB about the need for translation-centric book reviews and their vision for the series, which they hope will create space for a new kind of translation criticism. Read the first installment in the series here.
