Quotes by Soutar[edit]

  • So do I feel honored to have translated the first novel by a Cape Verdean woman to be published in English? Absolutely. As a milestone there may be as much to lament as to celebrate, but it’s always an honor to be entrusted with a writer’s words and a privilege to help a great work reach a wider audience. When those words speak for generations of forgotten women and the work represents an oft-forgotten country, the honor is greater still.
