Ingrid Jonker’s Waterfall of Moss and Sun to be translated into Portuguese.
Ingrid Jonker’s Waterfall of Moss and Sun consisting of English poems translated from Afrikaans by her very own daughter, Simone Garcia Marques, will soon be translated into Portuguese by translator Leticia Bergamini.
Acquiring translator and editor Leticia Bergamini says: “I believe my job is to spread the word of authors that may be invisible for some reason, and this is how I can help enlighten invisible women authors. I’ve read some of Ingrid’s poetry in English and immediately fell in love with her sensibility and accuracy.”
The acquisition was negotiated by Minimal Press and Leticia Bergamini.
More information regarding publication will be made available in due course.
*The English version of Waterfall of Moss and Sun is available soon.
