Ariana Reines Translates Tiqqun

“The way I’ve put it to my friends is that working on [the translation] was like being made to vomit up my first two books, eat the vomit, vomit again, etc., then pour the mess into ice trays and freeze it, and then pour liquor over the cubes … I don’t know why I’ve been hesitant to say this publicly.”
