Writers in Translation announces the fourth book to be supported by the programme

Writers in Translation is delighted to announce that Gate of the Sun by Elias Khoury (translated by Humphrey Davies) has been chosen as the fourth title to be offered a grant by the programme.

Gate of the Sun presents a mosaic of personal stories which combine to form the story of Palestine from 1936 to the present day.  More information on the book will be available shortly on the programme’s webpages.

At the programme’s committee meeting in February 2005, the book was praised for its relevance to PEN, and for the quality of the translation.  We are looking forward to seeing an edited sample of the book later this year.

The book will be published by Harvill in November 2005, and we are looking forward to working with Harvill to promote the book.
