Translated By is published to coincide with an exhibition at the AA, which gathers eleven literary writers and eleven literary places and subjects them to an act of immaterial translation - via the voice. The stories run through Ramallah, recollect turn-of-the-century Sofia, remember the spaceship-looking-Sheraton Hotel in Doha, wander through the 'Metaverse' and end at the end of the world in West Vancouver. Each of the authors invent or interpret place. Mundane, marginal, infamous, impossible. Together, the texts create a strange and beautiful territory that traverses distance and time. Writers include Douglas Coupland, Rana Dasgupta, Hu Fang, Julien Gracq, Jonathan Letham, Tom McCarthy, Guy Mannes Abbott, Sophia Al Maria, Hisham Matar, Adania Shibli, and Neal Stephenson, with essays by Charles Arsène-Henry and Shumon Basar.

...I stayed at Aqua Blu hotel for 7 nights from 01 September 2013 with my boyfriend. I wanted a modern boutique hotel close to Kos Town and I found a few options but Aqua Blu was my favourite. It only opened in 2012 yet already had very positive reviews online. The hotel is for adults only and is located in Lambi which is close to Kos town and is a relatively small hotel which also has a spa...
