neil-gaiman: capusso: Neil Gaiman’s newest book. Some years...



Neil Gaiman’s newest book.

Some years ago, on a stage in a university in China, I watched the audience shout at the translator, who shouted back at them, when I talked about American Gods. After the talk was done, I learned that the translator was convinced that I could not have said American Gods and had to have been talking about American Dogs. The audience, who were familiar with my book and many of whom spoke English, disagreed. The translator told them he knew what he was talking about, and continued to translate the book as American Dogs for the rest of my talk.
