The January 2014 edition of online quarterly journal is out, it's a great place to check out what's happening in the world of literary translation.
One of the feature articles is an interview between world renowned artist Yoshitomo Nara, and author Hideo Furukawa. Furukawa is from Koriyama which is just up the road from me, so it's interesting to hear his reaction to the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
I've been a fan of Yoshitomo Nara for a while, I try to check out his exhibitions if one is nearby, and I have a limited edition version of Fantomas' 2005 album Suspended Animation which featured his artwork and a special calendar.
And interesting interview, check it our here: http://www.asymptotejournal.com/article.php?cat=Interview&id=26
