Big in Japan, Again: The Odyssey of an Essay

And so, the odyssey of a little essay I wrote way back in 2004 continues . . .

For the life of me, I have never understood the widespread interest in a seemingly insignificant Notablog entry I wrote back in 2004, advertising the publication of a Japanese translation of The Fountainhead, by Ayn Rand. Well, it's happened again; this time the essay (which highlights my work with Kayoko Fujimori in translating the novel for the Japanese audience) has been translated for a Ukranian readership. The essay appeared initially as a Notablog exclusive on July 20, 2004.

Check out the new translation of that essay here.

Apparently the piece is still Big in Japan, and Romania, Russia, the Ukraine, Poland, Spain, and America. C'est la vie. (Like, yeah, when will the French translators get into the act?!)
