Today is going to be a good day.
People are persuaded to tell themselves this line, and it is supposed to change the course of their day. I don’t know if today is going to be a good day, but today is the day that I am going to recommend a book to you. This book was a very long time coming, and that is still an understatement.
The way this world works I am going to say that this book was written by somebody I know well, and it tells a story, or rather several mini-stories of court and police interpreting, as well as telephone interpreting and interpreting in social care and medical context.
The stories are entertaining, the book is enjoyable, even if I do say so myself. I would like to recommend it to you. If you do end up not only buying it, but reading it too, please write a review, I would be most genuinely interested to know what you think of it.
So here goes. No further ado.
Introducing View from the Dock, Diary of the Court Interpreter by Cordelia Novak.
I hope you like it.
