    I really liked the title story, Sleeping Beauty , and the essay on translation An excerpt Translating one s own literary work is, in short, a complex, disturbing occupation It can be diabolic and obsessive it is one of the few instances when one can be dishonest and feel good about it, rather like having a second chance at redressing one s fatal mistakes in life and living a different way The loyal translator will write what is correct, the devil whispers exultantly in one s ear, but n I really liked the title story, Sleeping Beauty , and the essay on translation An excerpt Translating one s own literary work...
