Talking Translations: Lisa McInerney & Inhwi Jin

The Rules of Revelation, from Cork to Korea. Lisa McInerney reads a section of her third novel, The Rules of Revelation, an extract titled 'Cork is a male kind of place.'  Lisa is joined by Inhwi Jin, who reads her newly-commissioned Korean translation. This episode is in celebration of Brigid's Day in Ireland and the Lunar New Year, connecting Ireland and Korea.

For each episode of 'Talking Translations' we have paired a story with a language, and asked the author and translator to read their work aloud. It is our hope to share these stories with listeners around the world, heard in languages where the author may not yet be widely published.
