Lisa Carter has just posted an interview with Daína Chaviano, a discussion of the Cuban-American author's novel La isla de los amores infinítos from a translation perspective.
Chaviano is the award-winning author of several novels published in Spanish. She won the Azorín Award for Best Novel for El hombre, la hembra y el hambre (Man, Woman and Hunger). The Island of Eternal Love, which is her most recent work, was the recipient of the 2006 Florida Book Awards’ Gold Medal for Best Spanish-Language Book and has been translated into twenty-five languages. A Havana native, Chaviano has lived in Miami since 1991.
