Mind of Steel and Clay: Camille Claudel
Enrique Laso (Author), Emma May Price (Translator)
Available on Amazon, Kobo, iTunes and Barnes and Noble.
This is my first translated novel, published in electronic format by Babelcube.com.
Mind of Steel and Clay: Camille Claudel is a diary. Through the guilt-ridden words of Edouard Faret, Director of the psychiatric hospital of Montdevergues, we are drawn into the life of an exceptional woman, Camille Claudel.
In the 19th century, Camille was an unrivalled sculptress and both the student and lover of Auguste Rodin. She wanted to make a name for herself in a world of men, to achieve the fame and prestige that her work deserved, but this never came to pass.
In 1913, after the death of her adored father, her family committed her by force to an asylum. There she would stay, locked up against her will for 30 years until her death, despite the doctors and others who argued in defence of her sanity.
Mind of Steel and Clay: Camille Claudel tells the tragic tale of an extraordinary woman, an artistic genius whose fate was sealed with misfortune.
For the first time ever, the dark, unknown years of Camille's confinement, an era shrouded in mystery, are revealed and explored in great depth.
Through his diary, the Medical Director of the psychiatric hospital describes the years of confinement of the sculptress Camille Claudel. This bloody, ruthless account is teamed with the hardship of the Vichy France regime in World War II, yet is dappled with moments of inspiring hope; art, passion, guilt, madness and genius are at the forefront of this short novel.
Perhaps Enrique Laso's most acclaimed and profound novel to date, the author's admiration for Camille shines through, whilst on countless occasions he shares in her rage against the injustice of a world in which the cruel and deplorable are allowed to win.

Guide Book about moving to Marseille
I translated a carefully selected extract from the guidebook about Marseille from the series ‘S’installer à’: a unique set of informative publications giving an overview of daily life, practical advice and resources for those wanting to move to or visit some of France’s most famous cities.
The text posed a suitable and topical translation project, owing to the niche market for English-language guidebooks about Marseille. This is likely to be one of many publications which attempt to portray this new innovative-side of the city, evident in the more conventional beginning chapters which feature an overview of history and culture for holidaymakers. Furthermore, Marseille’s privileged position this year as the European Capital of Culture 2013 has involved an extensive renovation of the city and its image, attracting more tourism as well as improving the city’s reputation. As a consequence of this, the section which describes Marseille in terms of the property available in the various districts is aimed at those wishing to relocate to the city.
The translation brief is to translate the ST for the English version of a website which promotes Marseille as a place to visit, to live and buy property, which advertises this guidebook as a further reading suggestion. The extract serves to fill the English version of a website about Marseille as a place to visit or relocate to, with the property information taken from the book, including the brief overview of Marseille and its districts. (See extract of blurb below)
S'installer à Marseille - Mediterranée
Marseille, son Vieux-Port, ses panisses, sa Bonne Mère. Mais encore ? À partir d’une enquête approfondie, ce guide explore le Marseille de la vie de tous les jours à l’usage des néo-Marseillais et de ceux qui projettent de s’y installer ou d’y séjourner. Pratique et vivant, cet ouvrage décrypte les codes de la ville et délivre toutes les informations pour réussir son séjour ou son intégration dans la cité phocéenne et dans ses environs. Un livre à recommander aussi aux Marseillais tant il pourrait bousculer l’idée qu’ils se font de leur propre ville…
Correspondant à Marseille de l’Agence France Presse (AFP), Éloi Rouyer s’est installé il y a quatre ans dans la cité phocéenne, qui est devenue sa ville d’adoption et de cœur. Il a placé ses talents de journaliste au service de ce guide afin de tracer de Marseille un portrait fouillé, débarrassé des clichés et des idées reçues.
Moving to Marseille: The anti-tourist’s guide to the Mediterranean city
Marseille: the Vieux-Port, chickpea panisses and La Bonne Mère, the Notre-Dame de la Garde cathedral, but there’s so much more to discover. Based on an in-depth study, this guide explores the Marseille of everyday life, a tool for those newly-arrived to Marseille, as well as those who are planning to move there or to visit. This book deciphers the city’s codes in a practical and engaging way to provide you with all the information you need to plan your visit or move to Marseille and its environs. This book is also recommended to local Marseillais themselves, as it might just change the way they look at their own city.
Four years ago, as AFP (Agence France Presse) correspondent in Marseille, Eloi Rouyer moved to this ancient Phoenician port (or la cité phocéene as the French like to say), and ever since then it has been his home from home. In this guide, Rouyer puts his journalistic skills to good use to paint a detailed picture of Marseille, freeing it from old clichés and misconceptions.
