The Ghost in the Book

Original title: El fantasma en el libro
Synopsis:

The Ghost in the Book is a brilliant essay on an often overlooked but extremely important contemporary craft: translation. In a world full of translations, it continues to be an invisible profession, a great unknown that, paradoxically, is everywhere: at work, at the cinema, on the internet, in advertising and on the street. 

Javier Calvo, one of the best literary translators in Spain, offers the public a backstage peek of a fascinating profession, sharing plenty of anecdotes from the history of translation as well as depicting the translator’s everyday life and exploring the factors that are transforming this increasingly omnipresent and necessary discipline now and in its uncertain future.   

 A brilliant essay on an invisible craft: translation.
