Mary Costello & Isabel Puente Lozano: 'Things I See' in Spanish

Author Mary Costello reads her short story 'Things I See' from her home in Dublin, in English. Mary is joined by translator Isabel Puente Lozano, who reads her Spanish translation of the story, 'Las cosas que veo', from her home in Dalkey. 'Things I See' is set in a family home in Ireland. The story weaves between the spaces inside a marriage, inside the relationship of mother and daughter, husband and wife, and the rituals and habits of home. 'Things I See' is about the distances that can accumulate between people, and the humble elasticity of love.
