Legendary publisher and writer John Calder said of Barbara Wright that she was "the most brilliant, conscientious and original translator of 20th century French literature." Wright introduced to an English-speaking readership and audience some of the most innovative French literature of the last hundred years: a world without Alfred Jarry's Ubu, Raymond Queneau's Zazie, and Robert Pinget's Monsieur Songe scarcely bears thinking about. This wonderful collection of texts about and by Barbara Wright-including work by David Bellos, Breon Mitchell, and Nick Wadley, as well as a previously unpublished screenplay written and translated by Wright in collaboration with Robert Pinget-begins the work of properly commemorating a figure toward whom all of English letters owes an unpayable debt.
