seeing     August was Women In Translation month. Sorry, I mean #WITMonth – that time in late summer when book lovers come together to chip away at the UK publishing industry’s ignominious stats on two fronts: foreigners and female authors. What a perfect opportunity to discover that South American lady writers exist. As an erstwhile student of South American literature, it took some googling and a few rounds of intense Wikipedia surfing to be convinced that women not named Isabel Allende have ever picked up a pen anywhere on the continent. I’m not sure my professors are aware of them to this day.
