MEMBER PUBLICATION: Holmberg, The Translator Without Talent

Dear Colleagues.

I would like to announce the publication of my new book, The Translator Without Talent, from Bubbles Zine Publications in Richmond, Virginia. While mainly of interest to people in manga/comics studies, Japanese pop culture studies, and translation theory, it also deals with issues pertaining to the Japanese art world, nuclear power and weapons, Buraku and Zainichi discrimination, and the American military presence in Japan.
