Literature Ireland

An Interview with Aga Zano, Polish Translator

On this episode of the podcast, Polish translator Aga Zano discusses using Google Maps to describe cities she hasn’t visited, how her love for literary translation began as a kid creating subtitles for cartoons, and why she thinks Megan Nolan is Sally Rooney’s dark twin.  

Aga Zano spent two weeks in Dublin in October 2022 as Literature Ireland's translator-in-residence. During her time here, she worked on Sebastian Barry's upcoming novel Old God's Time.
