Five links for a final Friday (May)

I know some diligent bloggers (like my favorite for smart design, swissmiss) who post a host of links every Friday: what they’re reading, watching, and enjoying. I’m going to join the trend and post five links too — but just on the final Friday of every month (for now). Five pieces I enjoyed this month:

  1. Roland Kelts on the art of translation: Can Murakami (or any Japanese author) be translated into English?
  2. And more on translation: The master translators who got me to read (and LOVE) the classic Russians on finishing their final Tolstoy work
  3. The end of a travel writer? Paul Theroux’s last journey through Africa
  4. The history of typography: An education in fonts through paper letters
  5. Women dominate the publishing industry (but not the published) in Where the Boys Are Not
