New online in May… to read

This month, as every other, saw a steady stream of new translations published online. The citybook by Rebekka de Wit, As Venice is Now, is now online in English, Italian, and French, as well as the original Dutch. The English translation of Abdelkader Benali’s citybook about Skopje, Warrior on a Horse, is also available online following prepublication in The Low Countries. The citybook about Semarang, by Bouke Billiet, Palm Leaves and Promises, is now online in French translation.

The day before I leave Venice, it’s high tide, which technically means flooding, but Venice floods so regularly that it’s a matter of course. Flooding is like the seasons.’ (From: As Venice is Now, by Rebekka de Wit.)
