Scarlet Sails on Wattpad

I finally posted the first chapter of my translation of Scarlet Sails on Wattpad. Scarlet Sails is a novella by the Russian writer Alexander Grin. It was one of my favorite books, when I grew up in Russia, and I wanted to share it with my English-speaking friends.
First published in 1923, it’s a lyrical and romantic tale about the power of dreams. I hope my translation conveys at least partly the original beauty of this charming and unique story.

You can read it here.

The next chapter is coming soon…

    What a wonderful story, Olga. Thank you for all your work translating. Coming from a family with a story-telling tradition, I LOVE third person omniscient narrator. There’s nothing like a journey through a story with a master storyteller. A skill that is often under-appreciated today. Thank you for sharing. Rita
