Yesterday the postal carrier knocked on my door, handed me a box, and said, “Books. Yours?”
It never gets old. Ever.
I got to show him this one: the Polish edition of The Shadow Tracer. The title translates as “Shadow Tracker.”
The shoutline, run through Google’s meat grinder of a translator, comes out as, “Peekaboo to death and life.” I imagine a Polish speaker would rephrase that to match the shoutline on the British edition: “Hide and seek. Live or die.”
