UEA lecturer aims to promote translated literature worldwide

A lecturer at the University of East Anglia is launching a national campaign to promote translated literature.

Dr BJ Epstein set up the UK's first book group to focus solely on translated works, and now hopes to roll out the idea to other towns, cities and countries.

The academic, who works at the UEA's British Centre for Literary Translation, has developed a series of documents with tips and advice for other people wanting to start their own translated book clubs.
