Green Wheat, Colette, trans Zack Rogow
Written in 1923, Green Wheat is set in a villa in Brittany and is a story of burgeoning sexuality. This edition does more than meet Rogow's mark "to do justice to Colette's enormous talent"--it presents a great classic to the world once again.
Rogow translates French literature and was a co-winner of the PEN/Book-of-the Month Club Translation Award for Earthlight, by André Breton, as well as winner of a Bay Area Book Reviewers Award for his translation of George Sand's novel, Horace. He serves on the board of directors of the Center for Art in Translation and teaches in the M.F.A. in Writing Program at the California College of Arts & Crafts. He is the editor of a new anthology of U.S. poetry, The Face of Poetry, to be published by U of CA Press in 2004.
