“A sparkling book, filled with wonder”

I’m so pleased that I was given the opportunity to translate Cees Nooteboom’s Letters to Poseidon, which MacLehose Press have just published in this beautiful edition, with a foreword by Alberto Manguel. I always enjoy following Nooteboom on his travels, and this book, featuring musings and letters addressed to the god Poseidon, is an absolute delight. It was a joy both to read and to translate. Justin Marozzi’s review in The Spectator reflects my own feelings about Letters to Poseidon: “an engrossing journey across continents… there is little chance anyone reading Nooteboom would ever be bored. This is a sparkling book, filled with wonder.” I can’t recommend this book highly enough.
