Jill Schoolman - Archipelago Books

Vous pouvez lire sur le blog de Roy Miller un interview de Jill Schoolman, la fondatrice de Archipelago Books qui a publié Notre-Dame du Nil (Our Lady of Nile), Inyenzi ou les Cafards (Cockroaches) et publiera cette année La Femme aux pieds nus.

Jill Schoolman, founder and publisher of Brooklyn-based Archipelago Books, is pretty fearless despite her petite frame and soft voice, which you’ll never hear on a smartphone because she doesn’t own one, even though I offer to go with her to a nearby cellular phone store. Her priority is simple: find, translate, edit, and publish essential foreign-language texts. The name, Archipelago, expresses how Schoolman sees her book list: as a collection of disparate narratives with individual shapes and ecosystems all swirling about in a landscape of different countries, languages, authors, translators, and voices, but uniting to promote global understanding in the sea that is good literature.
