Championed by Roberto Bolaño and selected as one of Granta’s “Best Young Spanish-language Novelists,” Andrés Neuman is one of the hottest authors of our time. His first two novels in English—Traveler of the Century and Talking to Ourselves—were both finalists for the Best Translated Book Award and received immense amounts of praise.

Rock, Paper, Scissors, Naja Marie Aidt’s debut novel, is about a stationery-shop owner whose life falls apart after discovering a secret package in his deceased father’s belongings. Poetic and affecting, this novel has taken the world by storm and now, thanks to Rochester native K. E. Semmel, is finally available in English. Join us for a conversation about emotional honesty in fiction, difficulties of translation, and the transition from writing poetry to writing novels.
