Sara Baume & Anna-Nina Kroll: 'Green, Mud, Gold' in German

Read more

Sara Baume reads her story 'Green, Mud, Gold' to us from a stormy day in West Cork. Sara is joined by German translator Anna-Nina Kroll, who reads her translation to us from Essen, in Germany. 'Green, Mud, Gold' is a summer story, with two cousins, Dark and Fair, and a particularly prodigious Field.
For each episode of 'Talking Translations' we have paired a short story with a language, and asked the author and translator to read their work aloud. It is our hope to share these stories with listeners around the world, heard in languages where the author may not yet  be widely published.
Literature Ireland Promotes Irish literary authors and their work worldwide and is funded by Culture Ireland and the Arts Council.

To support our work and listen to additional content, see here: https://patreon.com/yourshelf and follow us on social media @_yourshelf_. In our latest, fourth episode of The YourShelf Podcast, Flights of Thought, our chief curator Juliano Zaffino (Jay) sits down with author Sara Baume to discuss books, birds, and Sara's nonfiction debut handiwork. For full show notes, see here: https://podcast.yourshelf.uk/episodes/4. Thanks for listening.  


Episode Notes

  • Jay asks Sara about her bookshelves, the books that made her, and what she's excited to read in the near future. (from 2:12)
  • Sara begins the discussion with some insights from the writing of her nonfiction debut, handiwork. Sara and Jay discuss all three of Sara's published books, the importance of birds, solitude and other recurrent themes throughout her work. (from 13:30)
  • Finally, Sara talks about her new novella, slated for a 2021 publication, and talks about launching a book during a national lockdown. Sara also shares some quarantine reading recommendations. (from 54:02)
  • Jay recommends signing up to our Patreon for access to exclusive content, including a 10min bonus episode with more content from the interview, where Jay and Sara Baume play a game of "Celebs Read Nice Tweets", and Sara answers some "phone-in questions".
  • Jay wraps up with all the books that were discussed in the episode and a few other books he recommends. Some of the books and authors we discussed in our latest episode include Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things, Alice Lyons’ Oona, Celia Paul’s Self Portrait, Iris Murdoch’s The Sea, The Sea, Raynor Winn’s The Salt Path, Max Porter’s Grief Is The Thing With Feathers, Han Kang’s The White Book, Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall, Rob Doyle’s Threshold, Evie Wyld’s The Bass Rock, Adrian Duncan’s A Sabbatical in Leipzig, Olivia Laing’s forthcoming Funny Weather, Jenny Offill’s Weather, and Colum McCann’s Apeirogon. If you’re looking for even more recommendations, especially in the age of social distancing, Jay has you covered. While most of the books he's read recently have been Sara Baume’s three fantastic books, he also recommends the poetry of Doireann Ní Ghríofa, whose forthcoming prose debut A Ghost In The Throat is discussed by Sara earlier in this episode. Currently, he's reading Hex by Rebecca Dinerstein Knight, The M Pages by Colette Bryce, After Fame by Sam Riviere, and Rest and Be Thankful by Emma Glass; while he hasn’t yet finished these books, each one is already totally compelling and recommendable.
  • Also, Jay reminds that you can order a copy of his book of poems, the debut publication of The YourShelf Press, on yourshelf.uk/press.
  • Sara Baume closes with a reading from her non-fiction debut handiwork (from 1:02:48).
  • Buy, read and review handiwork online now, available from most bookstores! Sara's previous books Spill Simmer Falter Wither and A Line Made By Walking are also both available for purchase.
  • Thanks for listening and tune in again soon for Episode Five!
