An interview with author Anna Moschovakis is presented. Moschovakis notes that her first draft in translating the book "The Jokers" by Albert Cossery was terrible and that she relied on her editor to get the perspective of the book. She states that she was intrigued by the book because of its tone and its status as quasi-naturalist realism. She adds that she preferred short novels for translation like "The Engagement" by Georges Simenon for its gait of the text.
