A quick look back over 2008, a fairly quiet year in regards to Daney in English.
Five new translations:
- Baby Seeking Bathwater
- The Organ and the Vacuum Cleaner
- For a cine-demography
- John Ford for Ever
- The Dog and The Rope
Some disappointing news. POL, the French publishing house who had begun releasing Serge Daney's 'complete' writings back in 2001 told me they have no plans for new volumes (leaving the years 1985 to 1992 in the dark - as well as all the texts they've missed out). And some tentative plans for English books of translations unfortunately didn't fall through.
This blog had just over 3,000 visitors however Google Analytics tells me that many of these came only once and spent less than 10 seconds on the blog. My core audience is therefore the 240 or so loyal readers who came more than three times last year and stayed at least a minute.
Whoever you are, thank you for you interest. I hope this blog and my translations are helpful.
Let's hope for more in 2009.
