The first volume of Elsewhere stories in Polish translation is finally online! The original texts by prominent, Scottish and non-Scottish, writers were commissioned by the Edinburgh International Book Festival and published on the Festival’s website. As the title of the series suggests, its main themes revolve around journey, distance, escape and confrontation with the ‘other’. The aim of the project is to grant all these fantastic works a new life elsewhere, namely in Poland – in top-notch translations prepared by undergraduate and postgraduate students and other translation enthusiasts affiliated with the University of Gdańsk. The volume was co-edited by Marta Crickmar.
