Translated Accounts

Set in an unnamed place that appears to be under military rule, this novel comprises of various 'transcribed and/or translated' first-hand narratives of non-English speakers, reminiscent of accounts of incidents in Rwanda, Yugoslavia and even the Cultural Revolution in China. The fragmented, dream like episodes and the broken elegance of the language make 'Translated Accounts' a powerful and disconcerting read.
