Deep Vellum Publishing says
PEN Texas, our local chapter of PEN Center USA, presents Deep Vellum‘s inaugural book club in our brand-new bookstore featuring translator Sergio Waisman leading a discussion on Ricardo Piglia‘s Romulo Gallegos Prize-winning detective-noir-paranoid fiction masterpiece, Target in the Night, which NPR hailed as “an absolute joy to read…a clever detective novel and a surprising meditation on the complications of families and the way justice works in the modern world.”

Waisman will delve into the dark matter at the heart of Piglia’s work (Waisman has translated multiple books by Piglia) in a fun, conversational manner, answering questions about the methods he employed translating this novel as well as others, and will help us unravel the inner workings of this tightly-woven novel and the layers of historical and cultural references to Argentina’s Dirty War and the detective novel and noir traditions of authors Piglia draws upon for inspiration as varied as Jorge Luis Borges and Raymond Chandler.
