I'm in the Cahiers Octave Mirbeau!

Anyone care to purchase this year's Cahiers Octave Mirbeau? Along with the usual collection of scholarly essays on one of the great underrated writers of the 19th century, you will get the chance to read my first published essay in French. Mine is considerably less learned and scholarly than the rest; it's half a translator's note for my soon-to-be published translation of Dans le ciel (In the Sky), but mostly it's a paean to the immeasurable value of translation work as an apprenticeship in novel writing.
