One of my father's former colleages, who lives in Germany, has been pursuing a project to translate some of my father's poetry into German. Bernhard Beutler was tireless both in editing and pursuing the translation of the poetry book, as well as in pursuing the various avenues needed to get the book funded and published. With the help of the Quebec government (which has a great cultural policy), the project has come to fruition and the bilingual (German/English) book
Louis Dudek: For you, you - Fur Dich, Dir
was being launched in Berlin. The launch took place at the Bureau du Quebec in Pariser Platz with a bi- or tri-lingual address by the chief of the bureau, M. Trudelle and by Bernhard.

The French press release here .

It can be found here, on Amazon.de. You can also find it at the on-line bookstore buecher.de.

I had hoped to attend, but the costs of trans-oceanic travel are such that I couldn't go. We did have a little private book launching ceremony of our own with my Dad's former publisher Sonja Scarstead and with Geoff Isherwood (as well as Krys and myself, of course).

Cheers to Louis, and may this German rendition of his legacy lead to many translations to come!
