Full house at Reviewing Translation panel at the New School Thursday night, sponsored by National Book Critics Circle, #NBCC, PEN Translation committee. Should a reviewer be fluent in the language of origin? Opinions, naturally, varied, gathered nuance, depended upon whether you were a reviewer (Eric Banks, Ruth Franklin, Lorin Stein), a translator (Susan Bernofsky), an author (Julya Rabinowich), or a publisher (Lorin Stein, 12 years at FSG).
