Jennifer Croft: The Extinction of Irena Rey

In this New York Public Library event, Man Booker International Prize–winning translator Jennifer Croft discusses her debut novel, The Extinction of Irena Rey (Bloomsbury, 2024), in a conversation with Daniel Saldaña París. “I feel, as a translator, that I’m always on this mission of seeking an essence, a mysterious thing that can’t really be articulated...something I can capture and reconstitute in my language,” says Croft. Her novel is featured in Page One in the March/April issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
