Con esta primera ficha queda inaugurada la sección De cubiertas y traductores. Pretende ser un pequeño homenaje al trabajo de nuestros mejores traductores; sin ellos, el gran público se hubiera perdido grandes obras de la narrativa extranjera, o por lo menos, no hubiera captado todos los matices y detalles que plasmó el autor en su día.

Hay controversias en torno al cambio de traductores en autores consagrados. De repente, Murakami habla de otra manera, igual que Paul Auster. Y el público no siempre lo entiende.

Cada traductor tiene su voz, su forma de trasladar el mensaje a nuestro idioma. No es una ciencia exacta, eso lo sabemos. No hay una fórmula matemática para traducir algo. Un idioma es algo vivo, en constante evolución.

Traducir es hacer química, hacer magia. Traducir, es, en fin, como esa receta de tu abuela, que aunque sigas los mismos pasos, nunca te va a quedar igual que la de ella.


En cuanto a las cubiertas, o lo que se conoce como portadas, hemos encontrado decenas de otros países de los libros de Paul Auster que merecen ser mucho más conocidas. Hay verdaderas obras de arte.
