My favourite translated book – The Glass Bead Game

My favourite book in translation is ‘The Glass Bead Game’ by Herman Hesse. The Royal Literary Fund has made a short film on books in translation – head over to the RLF to see the full film and find out more about why I like the Hesse’s dystopia and what it’s about – as well as hearing from writers Leila Rasheed, Penny Black, Jonny Wright, Shelley Silas, Gabriel Gbadamosi and Dipo Agboluaje.
