Andrew Wilson - Translators ​on translating
This ​volume brings translators out from the shadows that most work in, whether their field of translation is literary, technical, official, or religious. In the author's words, "One of the most enjoyable aspects of reading translators on translating is to watch from the sidelines as they pit creativity, experience, and tools of their trade against difficult source and target texts..." This book offers a professional translator's view of how his past and present-day colleagues have described their trade. His trawl through various sources has netted a plenitude of challenges that translators face in attempting to render - with elegance and precision - words said, and often well said, in a foreign language and culture. He touches on all the classic subjects: approaches to translation, cognitive processes, professional training, localization, translating for the theatre, literary and technical translation, literal versus free translation, the author/translator relationship, the business of publishing, (in)visibility of the translator, film dubbing, the pleasure of translating, "improving" source texts, types of translators, ethics, contracts, and so on. There is humour too in this work, which is spiced with delicious anecdotes and punctuated with quotations.

Andrew Wilson - Rachel Wilson - The ​Life You Never Expected
Sometimes ​you end up living the life you never expected. When Andrew and Rachel found out that one, and then both, of their children had severe autism, their world was turned on its head. This is a book about surviving, and thriving, when something goes horribly wrong. It is a mixture of their story and God's story, and the way in which his has shaped theirs. With clarity and biblical insight, they share their experience of grief and worship, struggle and hope. As well as reflecting on the specific challenges of raising children with special needs, they speak to broader questions as well: the problem of suffering, building a marriage under pressure, fighting for joy and trusting in the goodness of God. This is not just a book for families and friends of special needs children, but for all who have been thrown a curve ball in life, and need to know how to lament, worship, pray and hope.

Andrew Wilson - Mad ​Girl's Love Song
_A ​new biography of Sylvia Plath, a literary icon who continues to haunt, fascinate, and enthrall even now, fifty years after her death_ On February 25 , 1956, twenty-three-year-old Sylvia Plath walked into a party and immediately spotted Ted Hughes. This encounter—now one of the most famous in all of literary history—was recorded by Plath in her journal, where she described Hughes as a “big, dark, hunky boy.” Sylvia viewed Ted as something of a colossus, and to this day his enormous shadow has obscured her life and work. The sensational aspects of the Plath-Hughes relationship have dominated the cultural landscape to such an extent that their story has taken on the resonance of a modern myth. Before she met Ted, Plath had lived a complex, creative, and disturbing life. Her father had died when she was only eight; she had gone out with literally hundreds of men, had been unofficially engaged, had tried to commit suicide, and had written more than two hundred poems. Mad Girl’s Love Song chronicles these early years, traces the sources of her mental instability, and examines how a range of personal, economic, and societal factors—the real disquieting muses— conspired against her. Drawing on exclusive interviews with friends and lovers who have never spoken openly about Plath before and using previously unavailable archives and papers, this is the first book to focus on the early life of the twentieth century’s most popular and enduring female poet. Mad Girl’s Love Song reclaims Sylvia Plath from the tangle of emotions associated with her relationship with Ted Hughes and reveals the origins of her unsettled and unsettling voice.

Andrew Wilson - Agatha ​Christie és a suttogó orvos
A ​suttogva beszélő, fura orvosnak egyetlen célja, hogy a krimik királynő ölje meg helyette a feleségét. Kövesse el úgy, hogy sose derüljön rá fény. Agatha Christie-nek az eddigi legjobb ötleteire van szüksége, hogy kimásszon a gonosz csávából. Andrew Wilson bestseller AGATHA CHRISTIE-sorozatának első kötetét tartja kezében az olvasó. A regények alapötlete amennyire egyszerű, annyira rafinált is. Nem titok, hogy Agatha Christie zseniálisan csavaros krimiket írt. De vajon képes lett volna a valóságban kitervelni a tökéletes bűntényt? Aztán cserébe csapdába csalni, aki rá akarta őt venni a gyilkosságra? És milyen lett volna nyomozóként? Hasonlóan mesteri logikával jött volna-e rá az igazi esetek megoldására, mint az általa teremtett Hercule Poirot és Miss Marple?

Andrew Wilson - A ​Talent for Murder
Discover ​the real-life mystery centered on the queen of crime herself: Agatha Christie. In this tantalizing new novel, Christie’s mysterious ten-day disappearance serves as the starting point for a gripping novel, in which Christie herself is pulled into a case of blackmail and murder. “I wouldn’t scream if I were you. Unless you want the whole world to learn about your husband and his mistress.” Agatha Christie, in London to visit her literary agent, is boarding a train, preoccupied with the devastating knowledge that her husband is having an affair. She feels a light touch on her back, causing her to lose her balance, then a sense of someone pulling her to safety from the rush of the incoming train. So begins a terrifying sequence of events—for her rescuer is no guardian angel, rather he is a blackmailer of the most insidious, manipulative kind. “You, Mrs. Christie, are going to commit a murder. But, before then, you are going to disappear.” Writing about murder is a far cry from committing a crime, and Agatha must use every ounce of her cleverness and resourcefulness to thwart an adversary determined to exploit her expertise and knowledge about the act of murder to kill on his behalf. In A Talent for Murder, Andrew Wilson ingeniously explores Agatha Christie’s odd ten-day disappearance in 1926 and weaves an utterly compelling and convincing story around this still unsolved mystery involving the world’s bestselling novelist.
