We start the series with Allan Cameron, the founder of Vagabond Voices, translator of 24 books, and a writer himself. His most recent novel, Cinico, is a fictional translation of an Italian journalist's travelogue in Scotland.

In this episode Allan talks about his favourite work of translation, the role translated work has in politics and shaping national thought, and the nuances involved in the act of translation itself.

The Think in Translation podcast is a literary podcast series featuring international authors, translators, publishers and booksellers, with the aim of making translated books accessible to all readers.

We post new episodes every second Thursday, starting with 29 March.

This podcast is brought to you by Vagabond Voices, an independent literary publisher of novels, poems and polemics in English and translation. Take a look at our catalogue of translated books available to purchase online: vagabondvoices.co.uk/bookshop-changelings/
