Exonian translates debut novel by Swiss author
Richard Hall (1995, Modern Languages) has translated a novel by Swiss author Monica Camuglia, and the result is now available on Amazon.
Fallacy 2012 begins when, while trying to pick up the pieces of her life on a tiny Italian island northeast of Sicily, Sophia meets a scientist on a mission to publicise ancient Mayan prophecies to the public. Subtly weaving the destinies of her two protagonists into the broad sweep of international affairs, Camuglia shines a light on the emotions of a deeply traumatized woman.
This is the author’s first published work and Mr Hall’s first translation of a full-length German novel into English. However, they are already discussing options for her next work – a love story set in Afghanistan that explores enduring love, real war and virtual identity.
