“Juan Emar, ahead of his time, was no doubt writing for readers of the future, and it’s as arrogant as it is exciting to suppose that those readers of the future are us."—Alejandro Zambra
We are delighted to invite you to join us at Molasses Books Thursday, November 17th at 8pm to celebrate the English-language debut of Juan Emar’s Yesterday, in a gorgeous translation by Megan McDowell. Megan will be joined by author John Wray for a special conversation on the Chilean master, the translation process, and more.
Books and drinks will be available to purchase at the bar and we’ll do a celebratory toast for Yesterday with a nice splash of prosecco!
