We’ve talked to many authors on Books & Boba, we’ve also read a few translated works for book club, but for the first time, we’re talking to a translator directly! On this episode, we welcome Anton Hur, the English language translator of Baek Sehee’s hit memoir I Want to Die But I Want to Eat Tteokbokki: A Memoir. We chat with Anton about he became a literary translator and how he approaches his work translating the words of other authors.
