Swedish Readers to Get First Glance into World of China’s Marginalized Reindeer Herders

http://bruce-humes.com/archives/11828

With the upcoming launch of Ett brokigt band om renens horn, we have a rare instance of a member of China’s dwindling reindeer-herding Evenki telling her people’s story in a European language. Given the historic marginalization of Scandinavia’s own semi-nomadic reindeer-herders, the Sami, it is particularly significant to see that the first translation of the novel from the Chinese (驯鹿角上的彩带) will appear in Swedish.

Translator and co-publisher Anna Gustaffsson Chen tells me that the book is being printed right now . .
