Luke Leafgren on The Tale of a Wall by Nasser Abu Srour

Anna sits down with Luke Leafgren for a conversation about his translation of the Palestinian literary memoir The Tale of a Wall by Nasser Abu Srour, published in April 2024 by Penguin Random House. Anna and Luke dive into urgent topics, discussing the politics of translating Palestinian literature, the challenges of collaborating with an author serving a life sentence in prison, and the groundbreaking qualities of Nasser Abu Srour’s prose, in which literary and philosophical forms inflect a testimony of occupation.
