An online dialogue with Sean Cotter, the translator of Mateiu Caragiale’s RAKES OF THE OLD COURT

September 2, 2021 @ 8:00 pm9:00 pm

Sean Cotter, translator of Mateiu I. Caragiale’s Rakes of the Old Court: A Novel, will discuss his work during this virtual event. The conversation will take place on Zoom on September 2 @ 6 pm PDT.
Widely regarded as the greatest Romanian novel of the twentieth century, Mateiu Caragiale’s Rakes of the Old Court (Craii de Curtea-Veche) follows four characters through the bars and brothels of Bucharest. Guided by an amoral opportunist, the shadowy narrator and his two affluent friends drink and gamble their way through a city built on the ruins of crumbled castles and bygone empires. The novel’s shimmering, spectacular prose describes gripping vignettes of love, ambition, and decay.
