Hiromi Itō and Jeffrey Angles: Writing, Translating, and Killing Kanoko

Hiromi Itō and Jeffrey Angles are both award-winning writers and Angles has translated a number of Itō’s works.

Together they will discuss the publication of Killing Kanoko / Wild Grass on the Riverbank (published by Tilted Axis); a landmark dual collection by Itō, in a ‘generous and beautifully rendered’ translation by Angles. Now widely taught as a feminist classic, Killing Kanoko is a defiantly autobiographical exploration of sexuality, community, and postpartum depression, featuring some of Itō’s most famous poems.
