Post subject: Chinese version of Finnegans Wake becomes best seller Reply with quote

Someone wrote:

[ from That's Beijing Magazine, March edition 2013

"Shanghai People's Press (SPP) translation of Finnegans Wake has become an unexpected bestseller, selling out its entire print run of 8,000 copies in three weeks and picking up almost as much media buzz as controversial Nobel winner Mo Yan (Chinese author). What could it all mean?"

Bob......your thoughts on this?

In Mandarin (Chinese) Finnegans Wake is called Tianshu (which translates as Heavenly Book). A gift from heaven for the Chinese? ]

I responded:

[ BOB: It's bullcrap.

You can't translate FW into a national or univocal language.

FW mates Book and Shortwave Radio (with a constantly shifting dial)... and that's just the beginning model as you move towards an understanding that it finally mates Book and Mobile Digimedia (iPhone, etc.). ]
