extraBabel

On June 18th Wilton’s Music Hall showcased some of the best living writers from the world over. Aleksandar Hemon, Adam Zagajewski, Ma Jian, Xiaolu Guo, Chloe Aridjis, Philippe Rahmy: all authors who enrich English with second languages, new traditions and unauthorised translations.
Babel, festival of literature and translation, creolisation, instability and linguistic hospitality left the steepest slopes of the Swiss alps to bring this migratory event to London Town.
