We are beyond excited to represent Jean-Baptiste Alaize's striking memoir FROM ASHES TO LIGHT!
"Alaize courageously tackles dark memories from the past. His autobiography, above all else, conveys a compelling message about overcoming adversity. As a four-time under-23 long jump world champion, he competed in two Paralympic Games (London in 2012 and Rio in 2016). In his striking first-person account, co-written with Adeline Fleury, Alaize advocates for resilience through sport."

The latest Translators Aloud features Tina Kover reading from her remarkable translation of SPRING IN IRAN by Armin Arefi, a journalist previously banned from the country under the ultraconservative Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's rule. He finds a very different country once he's allowed back in 2017, but how true is the change? What is youth against entrenched, conservative structures?

Pouvez-vous me dire comment je puis trouver un agent pour un livre de critique littéraire sur Kafka
Cette nuit sera peut-être la dernière pour moi.Demain, on sonnera le glas, pour dire qu'une vie s'est éteinte. On invitera ainsi les vivants à prendre le deuil et à verser des larmes en mon nom. Peut-être décidéra-t-on autrement de mon absence. Toute tentative de maintenir mes intérêts dans ce monde ne me concerne plus. Ce qui m'appartient s'est éteint avec moi et l'éternité, mon éternité, échappera à tout effort de retour. On s'efforcera de captiver mon individualité par les lamentations et le deuil. Mais cela ne touchera pas mon universalité, celle du néant, que j'aurai revêtue; car le néant est aussi universel pour l'être fini...Il enveloppe toute existence temporelle alors que la mienne (mon existence) n'est possible que grâce à ma conscience . Qui donc, dans ce monde, est habilité à mettre la main sur ma conscience ? Ne pleurez pas, mes amis! Vos larmes ne concernent que ce monde qui ne sera jamais plus le mien!
