    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 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 ...

    Rosario Ferr has only one story to tell women are dolls, primped and fashioned for display but she tells it beautifully Her language is rich with imagery.My suggestion Read this book one story at a time, with lots of time in between stories, so that you forget a little bit and then go back If you try and read the entire book at o...
