Found in Translation II
Just in time for the holidays, the English version of Cashmere: A French Passion - 1800-1880 by Monique Lévi-Strauss is now available in the U.S. I opted to order a copy from Barnes and Noble, and the book is expected to arrive around the end of the month. More to come when I have it in hand.
As mentioned a while back, you can see an extensive preview over at the French publisher's site.There's also a video interview with Lévi-Strauss here (no subtitles, though).
