VIKRAM CHANDRA: ‘JUEGOS SAGRADOS’ / ‘SACRED GAMES’ – SPANISH VERSION

 

 

Now out on the Spanish market is the brand-new translation of Vikram Chandra’s epic novel of the Bombay underworld, SACRED GAMES (Barcelona: Random House-Mondadori, 2007). It appears as JUEGOS SAGRADOS, and is translated (with translator’s note and glossary) by Dora Sales Salvador, who has also co-translated Chandra’s volume of stories LOVE AND LONGING IN BOMBAY. This means that all of Chandra’s fiction, including his first novel RED EARTH AND POURING RAIN, are now available in Spanish. This translation joins the Dutch, Italian and (in two volumes) German versions of the book on the European market. Including translation projects under way, it is expected that SACRED GAMES will be available before too long in at least fourteen languages.

 

Acaba de salir en el mercado del Estado español la nueva traducción de SACRED GAMES (JUEGOS SAGRADOS), la novela épica del submundo de Bombay que firma Vikram Chandra (Barcelona: Random House-Mondadori, 2007). Ha sido traducida (con nota  de la traductora y glosario) por Dora Sales Salvador, tambíén co-traductora del volumen de relatos de Chandra, LOVE AND LONGING IN BOMBAY (AMOR Y AÑORANZA EN BOMBAY). Esto significa que toda la obra literaria de Chandra (incluyendo su primera novela RED EARTH AND POURING RAIN – TIERRA ROJA Y LLUVIA TORRENCIAL), se halla ahora disponible en lengua castellana. Esta traducción se suma en el mercado europeo a las ya existentes versiones neerlandesa, italiana y alemana (esta última en 2 volúmenes). Con más proyectos de traducción en marcha, se espera que SACRED GAMES estará finalmente traducido en al menos catorce lenguas.
