Women in Translation Month: Q&A with translator Margaret Carson

As part of our continuing series celebrating Women in Translation month, we bring you this interview with translator Margaret Carson. Carson specializes in Latin American and Spanish literature and has translated works by Sergio Chejfec, Mercedes Roffé, José Tomás de Cuéllar and Griselda Gambaro. She also runs the Women in Translation Tumblr. When she stopped into Book Culture the other day, we knew we had to ask her some questions about Women in Translation month and her work as a translator; here are her responses.
