Peter Fry “With a deep knowledge of the two languages, Mark Carlyon has the rare gift of finding the right turn of phrase when translating literary texts from Portuguese to English. I found myself nodding in admiration as I read through the bilingual edition of Machado de Assis’ The Old House, for example.”
