Expand UR’s role

AMATEUR & PROFESSIONAL DIVISIONS

Just finished Mary Anna Towler’s article about schools, neighborhoods, and poverty (Urban Journal, July 8). Rather than torture ourselves with the pros and cons of neighborhood schools versus school choice, here’s an idea to cut through all that. Instead of putting the University of Rochester in charge of East High, let’s put them in charge of all city school first grades, regardless of location. If the results are better, the next year the UR will get the contract for grades 1 and 2. And so on, as our kids move up each year. The major problem with East High is most of its students are not ready to do the work for East High. That is on us as a community. ED SHELLY

Is gentrification good or bad? I think it would be easier to determine if the chicken or egg came first. After two years of living in D.C., I returned to Rochester to discover all sorts of new city business developments: City Gate! College Town! And bigger and better Brooks Landing! There is a new energy and new opportunities. And Rochester is starving for opportunities. The unemployment rate for African Americans in Rochester from 2009-2013 was 19.6 percent. In 2015, 32.9 percent of the city is in poverty, and 50.1 percent of our children live in poverty. We are in desperate need for knights in shining armor such as Costco, well-known for its living wage and work benefits. But I’m nervous. I know what that 32.9 percent of poor city residents are up against when they apply for those jobs. They are competing with better-educated, better-connected suburban applicants who look and talk like the majority of employers. I’ve spent a good part of my career working with young, urban

job hunters who dream about a part-time job flipping burgers. The suburban teenager’s humdrum summer job represents significant income for too many urban families. High-density poverty is a vicious cycle that impacts its victims’ ability to compete in the work world. Can Rochester’s gentrification lift our city’s residents out of this cycle? Or will it perpetuate and strengthen the income stratification between Rochester and Monroe County? More than half of Rochester’s children will be deeply impacted by the answer to these questions, so I pray our community supports new business development with integrity and intentionality.

The school board is to blame

I have lived and worked in Rochester for 10 years, and it is clear that the problem with the Rochester City School District and its board isn’t movement in and out of superintendents. It appears a more likely cause is a dysfunctional school board and shameful dithering. Time after time, board members adhere to seismic fault lines of ethnicity and economics as excuses to do nothing. To me, this behavior signifies a board that cares little about the children it is responsible for and the work necessary to prepare as many as possible for positive futures. Can it really be that some board members cannot negotiate in good faith and compromise when necessary? Do they truly want school children to learn to go for short-term gratification because there is little else for them? If the answer is yes to either question, then children are being shortchanged. Their parents ought to ask for change. GL CHARPIED

Blinking green could prevent accidents

What if you blinked two or three times? Three seconds is about the amount of time you get on a yellowto-red light. The DOT does not seem to want to extend the yellow-light time a few seconds to allow a driver

to react and not cause a rear-end collision when the driver slams on the brakes. Why not have the green light go into a flash/blink mode a few seconds just before changing to yellow? This would alert the driver that a change is coming, and STOP. G. MULLER

Inclusiveness is hip

Ban khaki from the jazz fest? (Feedback, July 15) Why? Some poor baby doesn’t like it? Tsk, tsk, tsk. I don’t remember seeing rockin’ Mark at this year’s fest. But I remember seeing rockin’ John several times, and I believe he was often wearing khaki. How can one reconcile disdain of khaki with admiration of him? Instead, let’s ban dress codes and exclusivist attitudes. Wear whatever you want: khaki, jeans, cutoffs, halter tops, sundresses, formal wear, flapper dresses, zoot suits, red-carpet gowns, what-ever. You can’t get more hip than that, Jack. Of course, that means we’ll have to endure pork-pie hats and lowrider pants (God help us). But, hey, that’s what inclusiveness is all about. Enjoy the music. Enjoy the variety in dress, looks, and types of people. And be courteous to each other. STEVE MURPHY

The wrong fight

We have been rolling over on wages for too many years, letting the 1 percent dictate what we deserve. I heard a mother angrily complain at a party recently that her daughter, an EMT, will earn less than a McDonald’s worker if the minimum-wage increase goes through. If I were that mother, I would be angry at how little my daughter is paid, not how much a burger-flipper earns. Unless we all complain, loudly, that wages have not been keeping up with costs, while companies like Walmart depend on food stamps to keep employees fed, then we will continue to fight with each other over the few scraps available.

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Diplomacy’s promise: the Iran nuclear deal If wiser heads prevail, the world is about to take a major step forward in controlling nuclear arms, and, perhaps, in reducing the tension in the Middle East. Congress is now reviewing the deal that the US, France, Germany, Britain, the European Union, Russia, and China reached with Iran earlier this month. The accord dramatically reduces Iran’s stock of low-enriched uranium and centrifuges, puts strong limits on new enrichment, and guarantees inspections of its nuclear facilities. Critics have legitimate concerns about the deal, and it would be naïve to think it will end the hatred many Iranians have for the US. It won’t lessen Iran’s determination to strengthen its influence in the region. And under the deal, the embargo on selling conventional arms and missiles to Iran will end in five to eight years, adding more weapons to an increasingly violent part of the world. “Its most immediate effect,” a Washington Post editorial noted, “will be to provide Tehran with up to $150 billion in fresh assets from sanctions relief over the next year, funds that its leaders will probably use to revive the domestic economy but also to finance wars and terrorist groups in Iraq, Syria, the Gaza Strip, Yemen, and elsewhere.” Israel and Saudi Arabia are furious about the agreement. Republicans in Congress seem pretty much united in wanting to kill it. And while the liberal group J Street is supporting the deal, some other Jewish-American groups are lobbying hard against it. But if Congress stops the deal, we’ll miss a rare opportunity, not only to lower the tension in the Middle East but also to move the US toward a heavier reliance on diplomacy rather than military action to solve disagreements. And if Congress stops the deal, we’ll enter an even more dangerous time. This isn’t a deal just between the US and Iran. Even if we don’t approve it, the Europeans could go ahead with their part and end their sanctions. In that case, Iran’s economy would get a boost. We would still have no controls on Iran’s development of its nuclear program, and the guarantee of strong inspections would be gone. Wall Street Journal columnist Gerald Seib notes that the attempt to negotiate with Iran on its nuclear efforts began during the George W. Bush administration. Seib recently

The accord with Iran could tamp down the nuclear arms race – and it could do a lot a lot more than that.” interviewed Bush’s undersecretary of state, Nicholas Burns, who was part of a US-European team working on that effort. Burns’ assessment of the deal: It’s the best option we have. “If you look through this deal,” Burns told Seib, “these are substantial restrictions on Iran. The probability of Iran getting a nuclear device in the next 10 years is extremely low.” If the US could get an agreement “where the Iranians submitted to every demand we had, I would take that,” said Burns. “In a real world, you have to make real-world decisions.” In the past, of course, Israel and some US political leaders have had their own idea of how to keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons: bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities. But the result would be horrible. We wouldn’t be bombing just one or two nuclear facilities. Iran, Fareed Zakaria wrote in the Washington Post, “has a vast nuclear industry, comprising many installations spread across the country.” Some of them are close to cities. Civilian casualties would be high. And besides the humanitarian cost, an attack by the US (or by the US and Israel) would further ramp up anti-US sentiment in the region. It would alienate not only Iranian moderates but also many of our allies. Iran and its allies would certainly strike back. continues on page 8 rochestercitynewspaper.com

Major tech win

News HOUSING | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

It’s official: the Rochester region will get a massive investment of federal, state, and industry dollars to establish a Department of Defense-sponsored integrated photonics manufacturing institute. On Monday, Vice President Joe Biden visited a SUNY Polytechnic Institute facility in Greece to make the announcement. Photonics refers to a broad group of technologies that use light. Applications include telecommunications, supercomputers and data centers, medical imaging and diagnostics, and defense technologies. The Rochester region has a history of innovative companies that have worked in the science of light, including Kodak, Bausch and Lomb, and Xerox, Biden said. And when those companies declined, he said, smaller, innovative companies rose in their place. “You’ve gone from making Brownie cameras to the lenses that are now mapping the far side of Pluto,” Biden said. The Rochester region will see substantial investment. The DOD is putting up $110 million toward the effort, while state and private industry have committed a combined $500 million. The money will be used to establish open-access labs and manufacturing space in the region — University of Rochester and RIT are two likely hosts — and across the country. State, federal, academic, and industry representatives still have to pick sites. The funds will also be used to establish the institute’s headquarters in the Rochester region; the elected officials who pushed hardest for the funding want it downtown. “Rochester, and I mean the City of Rochester, will be the headquarters for this effort,” said University of Rochester President Joel Seligman. “There are discussions going on. We’re looking at places like the Sibley building as the potential headquarters.”

The mortgage drought Despite the economic recovery, African Americans and Latinos continue to lack equal access to homeownership in Rochester and Monroe County, says a new report from the Empire Justice Center, “The River Runs Dry II: The Persistent Mortgage Drought in Rochester’s Communities of Color.”

New report: people of color have a harder time getting mortgages. FILE PHOTO

An analysis of local lending practices from 2010 through 2013 showed that the number of home loans issued in Rochester and Monroe County recovered from their lowest point in 2011. However, while the share of loans received by white borrowers consistently increased, the share received by African-American borrowers steadily declined. And the share of loans received by Latinos and Asians remained unchanged. In 2013, African Americans received only 3.2 percent of the home loans issued in Rochester and Monroe County, less than in 2010 or 2011. Middle-income African-American applicants were, on average, denied home loans 2.5 times more often than middle-income white applicants, the report says, while upper-income African Americans were denied twice as often.

Denial rates for neighborhoods of color also increased, says Barbara Van Kerkhove, the main author of the Empire Justice report. She recommends more vigorous enforcement of federal fair housing laws, which prohibit lender practices such as redlining neighborhoods. She also recommends the development of alternative creditscoring models, as well as increased anti-racism training requirements for the lending and real estate professions. The report notes that discriminatory policies, including some of the same housing and lending policies that exist in Rochester, existed in Ferguson and Baltimore for years before violence broke out.


ECONOMIC JUSTICS | BY JEREMY MOULE

Neighbors of the Palazzo Plaza site have concerns about the proposed Brighton development. Traffic is heavy on that part of Monroe Avenue, and the plaza will only generate more of it, they say. The development also has the potential to make the area inhospitable to pedestrians and cyclists, they say.

DEVELOPMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE

Plaza scrutiny begins The Daniele family has presented its vision for Palazzo Plaza, a highend retail development planned for a busy stretch of Monroe Avenue in Brighton. Now, the town is getting into the details of the proposal, starting with an in-depth environmental review. The plaza would be anchored by a 50,000-square-foot Whole Foods store. Daniele Family Companies would build the plaza on the site of Mario’s Italian Restaurant and the Clover Lanes building — both would be torn down, and Mario’s would relocate. The fate of Clover Lanes is not clear. The Brighton Town Board determined that the project would have a major impact on its surroundings — traffic is a significant issue — and required the developer to prepare a detailed environmental analysis of the project. The developer has submitted a draft outline of the issues that the analysis will address. The board will hold a public meeting on that outline at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 9, at Brighton Town Hall, 2300 Elmwood Avenue. The developer’s outline touches on drainage, design, lighting, traffic coming in and out of the project site, and other issues. After the hearing and a written comment period ending September 11, the Town Board

will likely add its own issues for the developer to study, says town planner Ramsey Boehner. For example, the board will probably seek additional information on traffic, he says, and will want to make sure that the project’s visual impacts are addressed. Neighbors of the Palazzo Plaza site have concerns about the development. Traffic is heavy on that part of Monroe Avenue, and the plaza will only generate more of it, they say. The development also has the potential to make the area inhospitable to pedestrians and cyclists, they say. (The developer, however, say that the project will make that part of Monroe more accessible to bikes and pedestrians.) Ben Werzinger, a Clover Downs neighborhood resident and project critic, says that neighbors want the project scaled back. They also want a proposed cut-through between Allens Creek Road and Clover Street eliminated, he says. (The developer says that the access road already exists and is in use.) “We’ve been fairly reasonable with the town,” Werzinger says.

Daniele Family Companies has submitted an incentive zoning application to the town, which must be approved by the Town Board in order for the project to proceed. And the board can’t issue that approval until the environmental review is complete. The town’s Planning Board also has to approve Palazzo Plaza’s site plan. The project requires incentive zoning because the plans vary from some town zoning requirements. The plans call for denser development than town laws allow. They also place two drive-thrus in the front of the property, which is not allowed by town code. In exchange, Brighton would get some public improvements, including improvements to a trail at the rear of the site and bike parking at the plaza.

Wage-war won A state wage board has recommended that the minimum wage for some fastfood workers increase to $15 an hour, eventually. The board, which was convened by Governor Andrew Cuomo, approved a package of resolutions last week calling for the increase. The state labor department commissioner will ultimately decide whether to order a higher minimum wage for the fast food industry. Under the recommendation, the wage increase would be phased in over several years. In New York City, the wage would increase yearly until it hits $15 in 2018. In the rest of the state, the wage would increase to $9.75 at the end of this year, and then increase by about $1 a year until it maxes out at $15 an hour on July 1, 2021. The board also recommended that the increase apply to fastfood restaurants with over 30 locations nationwide. That total would include corporate-owned stores as well as franchises. Board member Kevin Ryan, founder of online retailer Gilt, said that businesses would face a significant expense increase if the state requires a higher wage. The board recommended phasing the increase in for that reason, he said. Fast-food workers and their allies across the state and country have pushed for higher wages through the Fight for $15 campaign.

Christiana Otuwa.

PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN

Christiana Otuwa spent much of the last school year scrutinizing every potential suspension in the Rochester City School District. Otuwa, who is deputy superintendent of city schools, makes the final decision on whether a student should be suspended. She asks: Does the punishment fit the wrongdoing? Has the student received support services? Is it the student’s first suspension? What do school officials know, if anything, about the student’s family and home life? Otuwa is also the district’s representative on the Rochester Community Task Force on School Climate. The 50-member group, which formed last year and includes parents, educators, and advocacy groups, recently released its proposal for a completely rewritten Code of Conduct Policy for city schools. (The proposed policy and related survey are on the district’s website, www.rcsdk12.org/Page/41125.) The policy is the result of a report last year from Metro Justice that showed, among other findings, that 89 percent of suspensions in the Rochester school district during the 2013-2014 school year were for nonviolent offenses. And students of color and students with disabilities were suspended at significantly higher rates than their white peers. 6 CITY

JULY 29-AUGUST 7, 2015

The release of the proposed policy coincided with a trip that Bolgen Vargas, superintendent of Rochester schools; Adam Urbanski, president of the Rochester Teachers Association; and Tim Cliby, president of the Association of Supervisors and Administrators of Rochester made to the White House. The trio took part in a conference with school districts from around the country that are re-evaluating their approach to student discipline —moving away from punitive, zero-tolerance models to models based on restorative justice principles. Otuwa says that reducing suspensions, though crucial, is only one aspect of the new approach. And even though the task force’s policy recommendation is not final, some new practices, such as Otuwa’s direct review of suspensions, have already begun.

“We’re changing people’s attitudes from punitive to supportive,” she says. “Our students, teachers, and parents all need more support. How do we do that together?” Otuwa says that two of the district’s historical problems with student discipline have been a lack of clarity about exactly what behavior rises to the level of a suspension, and applying discipline consistently across all schools. And she says that she’s been working on correcting those things. “We started analyzing the suspension data weekly, looking at patterns,” she says. “Then the [school] chiefs talked with principals about those patterns.” Making the change to a restorative justice model could take three to four years to fully implement in Rochester, Otuwa says. It’s more than a policy directive, she says, or a new program. It is a seismic shift in attitudes that will touch every student, teacher, parent, and administrator, she says, and involve a completely different way of thinking about urban education. Some proponents of the approach, which has been around for centuries, describe it as a philosophy. Over the last 20 years, restorative justice has regained

attention after showing promising results resolving conflicts and building healthy relationships in schools, neighborhood groups, religious organizations, and correctional facilities. The proposed policy change for Rochester’s schools relies on a set of principles, such as promoting positive behavior, emphasizing prevention over intervention, using suspension as a last resort, and keeping student discipline out of the hands of police and away from the criminal justice system. And the proposed policy uses a scale of responses that should be taken when incidents occur. For example, inappropriate and disruptive behavior such as excessive absences and cheating would be lower-level offenses that trigger support services. Attacking another student and causing bodily harm, however, is a higher-level problem in grades 5 to 12, and could lead to short-term suspension. But embedded in all disciplinary action is a social-emotional component that encourages students to work together as peers to solve some of their differences, says Ruth Turner, director of counseling and social work in city schools. “Let’s take the incidence of two students fighting,” she says. “The support staff — school counselor, social worker, or psychologist — will facilitate what we call a restorative circle. They will bring those two parties involved in the fight together to address the wrongdoing through reflective questioning to help students understand that their behavior has an impact not just on them. It has an impact on their entire classroom, their teacher, and their parents.” The goal, Turner says, is to get students to build empathy and understand that what that they do — good and bad — impacts an entire community. When they feel that they are included in that community, she says, they become less motivated to act out. “Hurt people hurt other people,” Turner says. “We want to spend 80 percent of our time in relationship- and community-building, and hopefully spend

20 percent dealing with wrongdoing.” No one is excusing bad behavior, Turner says. But if the emotional component is ignored, she says, students will likely repeat the behavior. The district has begun training counselors, social workers, and psychologists in restorative practices, Otuwa says. And 15 schools have volunteered to adopt the approach, she says. The early changes could already be having an impact. According to an analysis, suspensions, though still in the thousands, dropped by nearly 10 percent in the 2014-2015 school year from the year before.

But not everyone is on board with the shift. Critics say that restorative justice practices are another education fad. And some teachers and principals say that they are already under intense pressure phasing in the Common Core curriculum and coping with a new evaluation system. One long-time district teacher who asked not to be identified says that teachers feel left out of another major policy change — although there are teachers on the task force. And people are worried, this teacher says, that the changes will be foisted on teachers and principals without sufficient support staff — namely, counselors and social workers. It’s true that each social worker is responsible for an entire school building, which can mean oversight of 1,000 students, Turner says. But both Turner and Otuwa say that school staff can draw on a team of advisors from central office who can quickly mobilize around a student’s needs, and the district can draw on outside agencies for additional, more specialized support. “I’m going to be very honest,” Turner says. “The need is great, but we’re doing the very best we can with the resources we have.” And everyone knows that the more punitive approach hasn’t worked, she says. “I’ve spoken to a lot of people across the entire spectrum of this community, and they get it,” Turner says. “This is the humane way of dealing with people.” rochestercitynewspaper.com

JULY 29-AUGUST 7, 2015

And once again, we would be trapped in a costly war with a highly uncertain outcome. Nor can we ignore our own history, which is at the root of the current tension between the US and Iran. In 1953, our CIA and Great Britain overthrew Iran’s elected government and put our own choice, Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, in power. He ruled Iran as a dictator, with our help, until he was deposed in the 1979 revolution, and Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini took control of the country. Iran, Guatemala, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Indonesia, Cuba, Vietnam: our relatively recent history simply sparkles with our violent interference in the affairs of other nations – not just meddling, but being actively involved in getting rid of elected officials we haven’t liked. We’re dealing with the consequences, around the world. At the heart of the debate over the Iran deal, then, is the US mindset: how we picture ourselves, how we view our role in the world: how we think we best protect ourselves, aid our allies, and work for peace in the world. The day after a presidential news conference discussing the deal, the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank complained that Obama “was tough and strong, but in service of the argument that American power is limited – that this is the best deal we could get with our declining leverage.” Obama’s argument supporting the deal, Milbank wrote, was “sadly, a powerful case – for American weakness.” Weakness? Only if you believe that strength can come solely from military might. Diplomacy isn’t a weakness. For years, we’ve assumed that the answer to everything is military power – and that what is in our own best interest is therefore in the best interest of the rest of the world. (Or we haven’t cared what was in the best interest of the rest of the world.) All those years, we’ve deluded ourselves about the meaning of power and the responsibilities of international leadership. And all the while, we’ve spent too much money on arms and too little on strengthening our own people. And we’ve paid too little attention to the plight of the poor and the oppressed in other parts of the world. The Iran deal gives us a chance to change that. Members of Congress need to hear from us, starting with a key Democrat in this debate, New York Senator Chuck Schumer.

Discussing the local economy

The Rochester Business Alliance will present an economic outlook for the Rochester-Finger Lakes area by William Dudley, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 12. Dudley will share his views on the importance of workforce development for the region. In his role as New York Fed president, Dudley serves as the vice chair of the Federal Open Market Committee, the organization that forms the na-

tion’s monetary policy. The event will include a light breakfast and networking prior to Dudley’s talk. A question- and-answer session will follow. The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency, 125 East Main Street. Cost: $10 per person. Reservations: 256-4614.

The Weathermen on film

The Flying Squirrel Community Space will show the documentary film “The Weather Underground” at 7 p.m. on Monday, August 3. The film by Sam Green and Bill Siegel details the “Days of Rage” in October 1969 when a large group of young people went on a rampage in the streets of Chicago. It was the first demonstration of a group

that became known as the Weathermen, who were protesting the Vietnam War, racism in America, and government repression. The Weathermen disrupted government, broke activist Timothy Leary out of prison, and evaded the FBI for years. It ranks among the most radical anti-government movements during one of the most turbulent times in US history. The film will be shown at 285 Clarissa Street.

Correcting ourselves Last week’s story, “Theater math,” incorrectly stated that RBTL commissioned a 2010 study on a downtown performing arts center. RBTL did not commission or fund the study.

The name Del Monte has long been synonymous with hospitality in Rochester, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they have opened a restaurant in College Town in the new Hilton Garden Inn. Grappa (30 Celebration Drive) opened on June 30 and features “upscale, casual, modern, Italian cuisine,” according to Erica Standish, the restaurant’s director of food and beverage. The Del Monte Hotel Group also owns The Erie Grill (inside the Del Monte Hotel and Spa) and Images Restaurant and Lounge (inside the Rochester Airport Marriott). Executive Chef Ryan Wilcox has worked in the restaurant industry in Rochester for 15 years, and has spent 11 working for Del Monte.

It all began in 2007, when publisher Chad Post and two others in the Because of the work involved, Open Letter’s first book wasn’t published until September 2008, but Three Percent launched in the summer of 2007. By the time publishing industry — E. J. Van Lanen, who now lives in Berlin and has his own Open Letter had its first publication on shelves, Three Percent was “one of the press, Frisch & Co.; and Nathan Furl, who manages Open Letter’s design and most trafficked international literature websites that there was,” Post says. “That’s production — moved to Rochester from Illinois. The University of Rochester grown exponentially over time.” was interested in starting a translation program for undergraduate and graduate students that would give them experience in learning how to translate as well as Three Percent has also expanded to include a Translation Database, which keeps connect them to the publishing world.

So this wouldn’t include a new translation of Dostoyevsky, Post sold throughout the world. says, only works that haven’t been translated and published in English before. By January 2016, Open Letter will have published 75 titles in fiction and “I can tell you how many books were translated from Arabic in the year 2010 poetry. It publishes more books per year than any other of the small handful of … this information exists nowhere else in the world,” Post says. In effect, the site domestic companies that focus strictly on translated books, and it receives a lot of is constantly sourced. Within one recent week, both the New York Times and The national attention. Earlier in July, the National Translation Award released its 2015 Atlantic called Open Letter to request data.

This fall, the database will expand to include information on whether the authors and translators are male or female. “Seventyone percent of the books published from 2008 onward in translation are written by male authors,” Post says. “Which is astronomically high, probably higher than the normal book industry.” Open Letter’s numbers are more balanced, at about 45 percent female authors. “We try to make it as close as possible, but it’s not perfect,” Post says. Out of the database, Open Letter launched The Best Translated Book Award, which is the largest award for international literature in the country. The 2015 fiction winner was “The Last Lover,” by Can Xue (translated from the Chinese by Annelise Finegan Wasmoen and published by Yale University Press), and the poetry winner was “Diorama,” by Rocío Cerón (translated from the Spanish by Anna Rosenwong and published by Phoneme). “Thanks to Amazon, we get $20,000 in cash prizes that are given out to the best work of fiction and poetry from the previous year,” Post says. The translators and the authors each receive $5,000 as a prize for winning, “which, for the poetry, is generally more than they’ve ever been paid for any poetry translation or book,” he says. In addition to working with a handful of

students in the academic program — about five graduate students and a dozen undergrads — Open Letter works with a network of professional translators in many different languages who are based all over the world. Some of the translators they work with are former students, including Will Vanderhyden, whose translations of Marguerite Labbe and Rodrigo Fresán are to be published by Open Letter. Translation is far more complicated and artful than the impression many people might have, which is why technology will never put literary translators out of work. “I think the main misconception the general public has is that people translate word-for-word — that they look at what the original French text says, for example, and they translate that word into English,” Post says. “That’s not at all how it works. You’re basically trying to capture a style.” Another impression the general public has of translators is “as scholars hunched over dictionaries in dark libraries,” says Katherine Rucker, a Rochester-based translator who graduated in 2014 from the program at UR and works for Language Intelligence. “But nowadays there are also a lot of vibrant, creative people who aim to advocate translation as an art form that doesn’t have to be limited to academia. People who are passionate about the same things tend to gravitate toward one another, and Rochester actually has a pretty sizable community of translators

and readers, so there are plenty of ways to connect with other translators and work collaboratively.” The phrase “lost in translation” irritates Post. “It sort of hinders everything in this negative way, rather than looking at everything positively in the sense that you’re not going to be able to read a book in Icelandic in your life if it’s not translated. And that is a pure gain for you, as an English reader, that you now have access to this Icelandic book.” Translators deal more with larger, more tectonic ways of looking at a book: asking questions such as how does the whole structure work; how does the paragraph work; and how does the voice work? They discern “what is special about how that author put together their art, and how can that be translated into English,” Post says. “Every reader comes to a book with his or her own mindset, ideals, and experience, and that can really change the book’s impact,” Rucker says. “With all the subtleties of language that go into translation, there are all sorts of opportunities for implying different shades of meaning — and the translator can only choose one at a time.” Rucker says that most of her challenges with tricky phrases actually come from trying to get the right tone and voice — for a scene with two lovers yelling and fighting, for example. “Whether the phrase is something the narrator or a character is saying, there’s always a particular voice that they’d use to say it, with their own unique vocabulary,” Rucker says. This is especially common with words or phrases with literal meanings that aren’t as natural in English as it is in the source — like cursing or insults. “I usually find it helpful to come back to harder phrases like that once I’ve worked on more of the piece and have a better idea of how each character “sounds” in English,” she says. “Reading it out loud and with other people helps, too.” Post and Open Letter’s editorial director,

Kaija Straumanis, together make decisions about which titles will get published. Many foreign presses serve as agents for foreign authors and mail pitches to Open Letter. “We work with readers and get sample translations to try to figure out if a book is right for us,” Post says, but sometimes translators themselves serve as agents and bring a sample of something they’re working on to the table. “They send us a ton of work — samples, things they’ve been working on,” Post says. And working directly with specialized translators is key, “because they know how to explain why a certain book is important to a country’s literature, or how it fits in with the books we publish.” continues on page 26

COMING SOON: Chad Post previews three upcoming page-turners

“Rock, Paper Scissors” by Naja Marie Aidt, translated from the Danish by K. E. Semmel While trying to fix a toaster that his recently deceased, criminal father left behind, Thomas discovers a wad of cash, setting into motion a series of events that plunges him into a shadowy underworld. “I met Naja in Iceland at the Reykjavík International Literary Festival back in 2009, and have been in touch with her off and on ever since,” Post says. “At that point in time, she had published mostly poetry, along with a couple short story collections. We hadn’t yet launched our poetry series at that point, but when I found out she had written a novel, I jumped on it. The book is brilliant — very much a page-turner, with a mysterious package driving the plot and very well-drawn characters, all flawed in interesting ways—and is a real step up for her, aesthetically speaking. The guy who translated it, K. E. Semmel, is actually from Rochester, so this is another book with solid local connections.” “The Things We Don’t Do” by Andrés Neuman, translated from the Spanish by Nick Caistor and Lorenza Garcia A set of short stories that consider love, lechery, history, mortality, family secrets, therapy, Borges, mysterious underwear, translators, and storytelling itself. “Neuman was featured in Granta’s special issue on ‘Best Young Spanish-Language Novelists,’ which was where I first encountered his work. (Besides his being praised by Roberto Bolaño, which goes a long way.) Farrar, Straus, and Giroux published his first two novels — ‘Traveler of the Century’ and ‘Talking to Ourselves’ — but following his visit to Rochester to participate in the Reading the World Conversation Series, he asked if we would publish his story collection, which I am thrilled to be doing.” “Rochester Knockings” by Hubert Haddad, translated from the French by Jennifer Grotz A chronicle of the rise and fall of Rochester’s infamous mediums, the Fox Sisters, shedding light on the context that birthed the Spiritualist Movement. “The French publisher of this book is someone we’ve worked with on a number of occasions, and when [Grotz] first got this manuscript in, she sent it to us immediately, both because Haddad was a writer we had considered in the past, but also because it’s about Rochester! Jen Grotz — poet, translator, director of the literary translation program at the U of R — read it, loved it, and offered to translate it. Such a brilliant book, and Open Letter really is the perfect home for it.” rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 11

Consequently, I listened to her with honky-tonk ears, or at least with some degree of rural expectation. When I saw her live, she played alone, accompanied by her lone guitar and a bold assertiveness amidst a noisy crowd. I admired her for her lack of drama and pretty voice (when I could hear it). I wanted more. There’s definitely a twang to her voice, but it isn’t overly countrified. Loveless isn’t afraid to dig beyond the dirt and drawl and go straight to the asphalt and urgency of a more balls-out rock sound. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

The Grand Ole Radio has taken storied country music that — though it’s in a heartbroken vein — still manages to uplift and re-affirm. It’s a mellow, acoustic affair that sparkles with love and love lost, and the resolve that travels between the two. Wow. I mean, this duo has the guts to take a stab at George Jones … and succeed.

Oberst’s prime political songwriting period, the band returns in time to deliver another visceral reflection on the unsavory state of the American climate. After the band’s first record, 2002’s “Read Music/Speak Spanish,” Oberst and crew have made themselves busy in his numerous other projects, almost insinuating that Desaparecidos were a one-off. A new record, “Payola,” suggests this is one of the only bands to take a 10-plus-year hiatus and actually get better. The So So Glos and The Banddroidz will also perform. — BY NOLAN H. PARKER

Music And you’ve obviously been embraced by the jam band community.

Yeah, you can kind of incorporate those sounds in the whole jam band market. We jam on some of the funk grooves. How did Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad scoop you up?

I read on the Internet that Aaron Lipp was leaving to join Robert Randolph. I had played a couple gigs with Dan Keller before. And I like a challenge. So I sent them a random message that I’d like a shot. And they sent me like four or five tunes. I learned them all. I showed up and we didn’t play any of the songs they sent me.

The Funknut crew is cool with you being gone?

Fun-kaay Tony Gallicchio

Keyboard extraordinaire Tony Gallicchio was minding his own business, playing the funk with his band Funknut, when an opportunity arose. The Rochester-based reggae super group Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad was looking for a replacement keyboard player. Gallicchio took a shot and landed the gig. The thick, funkified sound that he brought got tempered with the band’s deep-dish onedrop. Now the keyboard wizard is stretched thin between two bands with Funknut taking a back burner to GPGDS. But you can’t take the funk out of the boy. Funknut is a deadly ensemble when it’s in the groove: It’s fun-kaay. And whereas it shines on bombastic moments, it knows how to refrain from funk clichés. With two CDs on the shelves — “Hit It” and “Don’t Say Goodnight” — Funknut finally released its third record, “Juicy,” after recording it between GPGDS’s multiple sojourns on the endless black ribbon. And where Gallicchio is a perfect fit for the Pandas, the boy still needs to get his funk on. Just back from an East Coast run, he stopped by City

My third show was a festival in Florida with the Allman Brothers, Tower of Power, Widespread Panic, Maceo Parker. It was a pretty awesome gig.

They’re pretty cool with it. I mean, they’re still here. Newspaper to explain how it’s done. An edited transcript of that conversation follows. City: Gimme a little background on Funknut. Tony Gallicchio: I started it with some dudes

from college [FLCC] about 7 years ago. It started as Tristan Greene on drums and me on keys. We were doing the duo thing. I was playing left hand bass. We did some shows and thought it would be cool to get more people involved. Kurt Johnson was in the band for a while, then we got our bass player Sean McLay. Then we got Paul McArdle on guitar and he’s just phenomenal.

What was your mission?

We just wanted to be funky and play some funk and jazz for the people; stuff we love. What’s your background or influence, the stuff you love?

I’m a huge old school funk guy — Jimmy McGriff, Jimmy Smith, he’s the dude, and then things like Medeski Martin & Wood and Soulive.   When you started out, was anyone else doing what you were doing?

Funk was definitely around, but I think we put more emphasis on the funk. There needs to be more funk. So we said, “Let’s get funky.”

You always refer to the bands as “They” instead of “We” — que pasa?

For the longest time it was their band and I was just this dude playing keyboard. I guess it’s “We” when you’re with them and “They” when you’re not. How much of you do you bring to GPGDS.

Playing music is playing your role and serving the purpose of the song and the situation. You’re always gonna be you and you want to bring your flavor. I want to bring the funk but there’s a place for that. Yeah, it’s called Funknut.

Well there are funk elements to reggae and there are times they’ll look at me and say, “Ok, get funky, do what you do.” What else have you learned from GPGDS?

The Pandas have a show with good transitions: bam, bam, bam. I’d like to incorporate some of that into Funknut. I’m still learning. If Funknut were a movie, what would it be?

Well, we like to get funky and dirty, so a “Boogie Nights” type thing.   And The Pandas?

I don’t know? “The Goonies”?

POP | SIRSY

ROCK | GLASS ANIMALS

Don’t confuse pop with bubblegum. Sirsy is a hook-heavy duo that rocks the pop with maximum hip-shake appeal and without the typical cheese. Melanie Krahmer beats the drums and sings while Rich Libutti lets fly with Big Star hooks as sleek as Krahmer’s getaway sticks. Inventive, irresistible, and fun. I just love rock duos. Don’t you?

This English four-piece from Oxford are cool and groovy with occasional “weird interludes,” to use the band’s own phrase. Glass Animals’ song “Gooey” is likely one you’ve heard, which talks about “peanut butter vibes” and other liquidy mellow things. Drums keep the pulse while a lot of etheric and ambient sounds are layered on top. Lyrics are laid-back and smooth and seem more concerned with keeping this feel and texture than explicitly saying anything in particular. Cool things, man.

Doesn’t suck to be them “Avenue Q” REVIEWED SUNDAY, JULY 26 CONTINUES THROUGH SATURDAY, AUGUST 1 KODAK CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS, 200 WEST RIDGE ROAD THURSDAY, FRIDAY, AND SATURDAY AT 7:30 P.M. $22-$25 | KODAKCENTER.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY LEAH STACY

At first glance, the set of “Avenue Q” looks a lot like a rundown version of “Sesame Street.” There’s a brownstone façade and a stoop. There’s laundry strung between a few second story windows. But there’s also quite a bit of graffiti on these city walls — and most of it is swear words and sexual slang. “Sesame Street” for a more mature audience, perhaps? The two-act musical “Avenue Q,” conceived by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx with book by Jeff Whitty, was originally intended to be a TV series but was developed for the stage in 2002. It opened Off Broadway and quickly moved to Broadway in 2003 — that same year, “Avenue Q” won three Tony awards including for Best Musical. But even though it’s in the top 25 longest running shows on Broadway, it’s rare to see the show performed on community theater stages. Songs like “The Internet is for Porn,” “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist,” and “I’m Not Wearing Underwear Today” don’t exactly scream “family-friendly musical” — even though most of these songs are performed by people using puppets. 18 CITY JULY 29 - AUGUST 4, 2015

The plot will ring (sting?) true for many millennials. It follows Princeton, a blue, bespectacled puppet and recent college grad who wonders, “What Do You Do with a B.A. in English?” He moves to New York City, of course, and happily exists on checks from his parents until he finds his “purpose.” Princeton is puppeteered by familiar RAPA face Jimmy Boorum, who rarely disappoints in a role, especially one with pop-style vocals. Boorum’s excellent comedic timing and intuitive acting skills do not detract from the puppeteering, but add to the overall laughs throughout the show and seem to direct the cast. He also plays the supporting character Rod, a Republican financial advisor who is presumed gay by his group of friends and roommate but won’t embrace it himself (he even invents a girlfriend: “My Girlfriend, Who Lives in Canada”). Princeton’s love interest, Kate Monster, is puppeteered and acted by Holly Lowden, whose versatile acting and vocal chops make her convincing as both the insecure girl next door and the femme fatale, Lucy. There’s much more to be said about the nine-person cast of “Avenue Q,” from the lead players to the ensemble. Most of them puppeteer or play two characters — in the case of Yunjin Audrey Kim (Christmas Eve), she is affecting a thick Asian accent through the entire show (“The More You Ruv Someone”) but still shows off her powerful soprano voice. Tyler Hecht, a recent high school graduate and Stars of Tomorrow winner, puppeteers Nicky and blue Bad Idea Bear. Throughout

the show, Hecht switches effortlessly between characters and doesn’t miss a beat — musical or otherwise — proving his theatrical career will be one to watch over the next few years. Trekkie Monster, puppeteered by Steve Cena, is at once the most heinous and loveable character in the entire show, and Cena’s gruff voice and hilarious delivery proved him an audience favorite. The parody celebrity character Gary Coleman (played by recent School of the Arts graduate Danielle Williams) is a humorous plot twist, but its cultural wink may be lost on many of the younger members in the audience. There are three performance spaces in the Kodak Center for the Performing Arts, and this show is staged in the Executive Dining Room Theatre. It’s more dinner theater-style than auditorium-style seating, but an experimental space often works well for an experimental show — especially when the band, lights, and any screens onstage are placed strategically (and in this case, they are). Under Thomas Markham’s direction, the strong, professional cast and crew make the audience forget they are anywhere other than a dimly lit theater watching an entertaining production. “Avenue Q” is filled with innuendos and metaphors for the seasoned playgoer, and it’s a delightful challenge for the audience member who wants to analyze the Tonywinning show. For those who just want to have a good laugh at an inappropriate joke or two, well, that’s possible, too.

ART | IMAGES AND OBJECTS OF INTEREST: TELLING A STORY

The exhibit “Images and Objects of Interest” presents a broad range of film, digital images, and found objects from local artist Tim Cosgriff, celebrating the art of narration through photography. Cosgriff has a long-standing impact on the local photo scene; his works have been displayed at the Eastman House, the Central Library, the Memorial Art Gallery, Cutler Ballroom at The Memorial Art Gallery, and more over the past 10 years. With styles ranging from dark nature portraits to a gingerbread pyramid — made in 2010 for Eastman House’s annual “Sweet Creations” — this exhibition will showcase Cosgriff’s most powerful works. Also featured is a magnetic bulletin board, complete with words and images, which will allow patrons to create their own works. Images and Objects of Interest runs through Friday, August 28, at the Central Library’s Lower Link Gallery (115 South Avenue). Admission is free.

THEATER | “THERE’S ALWAYS TIME FOR A COCKTAIL”

Coming straight off a New York City run, Mrs. Kasha Davis brings “There’s Always Time for a Cocktail” back home to the Jewish Community Center (1200 Edgewood Avenue). This play follows the life of performer and writer Ed Popil’s own transformation from a young boy in Scranton, Pennsylvania, to the title of “Celebrity Housewife Mrs. Kasha Davis” and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestant (Popil appeared on the show’s recently aired season 7). The cabaret-style show mixes together music, stories, and party games with a strong dose of sentiments on love and self-acceptance. Originally developed at the JCC and workshopped at the Rochester Fringe Festival, Mrs. Kasha Davis performed “There’s Always Time for a Cocktail” at NYC’s Laurie Beechman Theatre. “There’s Always Time for a Cocktail” will be performed on Saturday, August 1, at JCC’s CenterStage. 8 p.m. Tickets are $18 for students and members, $20 for non-members.

Takes a licking, keeps on ticking “Southpaw”

(R), DIRECTED BY ANTOINE FUQUA NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

Whenever a famous actor undergoes a major physical transformation in preparation for a role, there’s a tendency for the details of their process to overshadow any actual acting involved, as though the ability to employ a personal trainer and dietician is the true indicator of what distinguishes a great performance from the rest. These types of bodily transformations are a sure sign that a performance is built for Oscar consideration, and sure enough, in the press coverage leading up to the release of “Southpaw,”

Movie Previews on page 26

most of the discussion has centered around Jake Gyllenhaal’s physical transformation into a world champion light-heavyweight boxer. And to be fair, the change he’s gone through is impressive, particularly when you consider that the actor leapt straight from portraying gaunt, sociopathic cameraman Leo Bloom in “Nightcrawler” into molding himself into chiseled prizefighter condition; he is impressively ripped. But an actor’s body is just one tool at their disposal, and this beefy physical appearance turns out to be just one facet of a complex, fully-realized performance. Gyllenhaal’s work here reminds us that over the past few years, he’s quietly turned into one of his generation’s most versatile actors. If “Southpaw” — written by Kurt Sutter, creator of “Sons of Anarchy,” and directed by Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day”) — doesn’t quite live up to the performance at its center, it’s still a solidly successful tale of redemption, in which a character hits rock bottom and has to claw his way back to the top. Gyllenhaal stars as undefeated world champion boxer Billy Hope (yes, that’s actually his name; subtlety

isn’t a priority here). As the film begins, he’s in the prime of his career, living a dream life with his wife, Maureen (Rachel McAdams), offering ringside encouragement and a young daughter, Leila (Oona Laurence, giving a remarkably assured performance), waiting for them back home in their mansion. But then, in the chaos that erupts during a confrontation with a rival boxer and his posse, the unthinkable happens, and Maureen is accidentally shot and killed. It’s an intense, viscerally-staged scene that Fuqua mines for all its emotional power. In just a few scenes, McAdams and Gyllenhaal build up years of history — we believe them as a couple — making her death all the more devastating to witness. The loss sends Billy in a downward spiral; without Maureen there to guide him, Billy loses his way, and his career and wealth soon disintegrate. When Billy’s increasingly erratic behavior puts Leila in jeopardy, he loses custody of his daughter and must prove himself capable of being a father again. Enter Titus “Tick” Wills (Forest Whitaker, dependably terrific in a stock role) as the sage trainer who agrees to give Billy a job at his gym, then doles out life lessons and helps whip Billy back into prime shape after his old manager (50 Cent) reemerges to propose another fight to resurrect the fighter’s career. Continuing a streak that includes stellar work in “End of Watch,” “Prisoners,” and “Enemy,” Gyllenhaal delivers a layered, lived-in performance that’s as beefy as his new body. Billy

Pretty something “Paper Towns” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY JAKE SCHREIER NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO

wears his muscle like a suit of armor built up as a defense against a hard life (we learn that he and Maureen both grew up in an orphanage in Hell’s Kitchen), but as the chinks in that armor multiply, there’s no protection for the mass of raw nerves underneath. Gyllenhaal has a nice rapport with Laurence, crucial as Billy’s relationship with Leila becomes the film’s emotional center. Throughout the film, there’s a sometimes uneasy balance between the melodramatic plot and the harsh grittiness of Fuqua’s direction. Occasionally, some of the plot specifics are a little fuzzy; I was unclear on the passage of time after Maureen’s death, where Billy’s money seems to run out awfully quick, and I didn’t entirely buy the fact that there was no real development in the investigation into her death. But those sorts of details aren’t deal breakers when the emotions underlying the plot machinations work as well as they do here. The film’s many fight sequences are appropriately dramatic and always feel authentic, as well they should: Fuqua hired HBO Boxing camera operators Todd Palladino and Rick Cypher to film those sequences. It’s always inspiring to watch a character pull themselves up from nothing, and with such a strong turn from Gyllenhaal, it’s hard not to root for Billy as he’s bloodied but never down for the count. His captivating work helps get us through the film’s first half, when the piling on of tragedy — combined with Fuqua’s in-your-face directing style — has the potential to leave the audience feeling as pummeled as Billy himself.

For most of us, there is The One. (And I don’t mean that in a “Matrix”-y way, nerds.) You fall completely under his or her alluring spell, and even if there’s no fairy-tale ending for the two of you, your time in their orbit inspired you to be daring and be vulnerable and be better... often even extraordinary. Fiction has abbreviated this very real being into the tiresome Manic Pixie Dream Person, a living library of quirks whose sole purpose seems to be a protagonist’s salvation. But rarely is this contrived agent of change allowed the depths of their earthbound counterparts, because that would screw the illusion. “Paper Towns,” the satisfying screen version of John Green’s popular Young Adult novel, challenges that Manic Pixie Dream myth through a wise and beautifully acted film: part mystery, part road movie, and all coming-of-age tale. Nat Wolff (he was Gus’s blind buddy in the other Green adaptation, “The

Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff in “Paper Towns.” PHOTO COURTESY 20TH CENTURY FOX

Fault in Our Stars”) plays Quentin, our hero and narrator, and he informs us at the outset that his longtime neighbor, Margo Roth Spiegelman (Cara Delevingne), is his miracle. As high school draws to a close, however, contact between the reserved Q and the popular, gorgeous Margo has dwindled since their respective social standings anchor opposite ends of the cool spectrum. But late one evening the adventurous Margo climbs in his window and enlists the wary Q’s help as a getaway driver while she exacts inventive revenge on a few jerks who wronged her. Their exhilarating mischief, in concert with that soul-baring time of night, leads to a kind of détente, an acknowledgment of their shared history and a hope that their friendship can continue. By the next day, though, Margo is gone. It’s not the first time the restless Margo has lit out, but Q’s reignited infatuation — a feeling he’s convinced is love — drives him to try and find her, and the fact that Margo, as usual, has left a series of clues only encourages the search. Q is aided by his two equally geeky friends, apple-cheeked horndog Ben (Austin Abrams) and sensible Radar (Justice Smith), and it’s not long before the three model students are skipping class and letting the suburban Orlando scavenger hunt blossom into a full-blown road trip ... on the strict condition they can get back in time for prom. And as with any proper cinematic journey, milestones are achieved, strong bonds are made, stronger bonds are tested, and lessons are learned, by both the actual travelers and us, the audience, who occasionally need to be re-educated as to what constitutes a happily-ever-after. Adapted for the screen by Michael Weber and Scott Neustadter (they

also wrote the screenplay for the very similar “500 Days of Summer”), “Paper Towns” is blessed with a smart director in Jake Schreier (“Robot & Frank”), who does little more than point the camera at his appealing cast. British supermodel Delevingne is totally believable as a Florida teen, and her teasing chemistry with Wolff sells their deep attachment. Besides the third-act breakdown, Wolff isn’t asked to do much yet he’s oddly compelling, likely due to a normalcy in which we can see ourselves reflected. But the movie might belong to Justice Smith as Radar, a nice kid who won’t let his cute girlfriend come over because his parents are angling for the world’s largest collection of black Santas. Smith’s line deliveries are both hilarious and startlingly organic; he’s a major find. What makes “Paper Towns” (the literal title refers to make-believe places on a map that only exist to counter copyright infringement) especially interesting, though, is that it’s very nearly a bait-and-switch. You think you’re in for another quiet-boy-meetsquirky-girl drama, but instead you’re treated to a funny, wistful look at friendship set during the waning days of high school, a bittersweet procession of last times, and an exciting parade of firsts. Endings dovetail with beginnings in the Margo and Q thread, which finds Margo ultimately verbalizing all the thoughts I’ve silently screamed at the screen during nearly every Cameron Crowe flick, where an enchanting, complicated young woman is expected to save some lost young man from himself. No one never seems to consider that the dream girl might be harboring a few dreams of her own.

HIS GIRL FRIDAY

Friday, July 31, 8 p.m.

Saturday, August 1, 8 p.m.

This darkly hilarious comedy—a surprise ratings hit in its native land—borrows equally from David Lynch’s Twin Peaks and Jacques Tati’s Monsieur Hulot. When a bumbling police-detective arrives in a small seaside town to investigate a bizarre murder, he rubs up against a band of urchins led by the irrepressible, eponymous Quinquin—the starting point for an audacious and unpredictable journey into the more bizarre corners of French society and the human psyche. (P’tit Quinquin, Bruno Dumont, France 2014, 200 min., DCP, French w/ subtitles) Part of the series Bruno Dumont.

His Girl Friday is a gender-bending version of Hecht and MacArthur’s comedy The Front Page. Rosalind Russell plays a breathless whiz of a reporter determined to give up her typewriter for a wedding ring, but her editor and ex-husband Cary Grant makes it hard for her to leave. The breathlessly delivered gags and dialogue are a signature of master comedy director Howard Hawks. (Howard Hawks, US 1940, 92 min., 35mm) Part of the series James Card: Mirth and Madness.

Found in translation continues from page 11

Open Letter attends the American Literary Translators Association conference every year (Open Letter actually hosted the conference in Rochester in 2012), at which about 350 professional translators are present. The decision to publish a book is based on the translator’s information and Open Letter’s judgement, “which is generally guided by the idea of finding books that are stylistically unique and are adding something valuable to book culture,” Post says. “We’re not just publishing for the media sales over the next few months, but thinking about, once we get all these books together, 50 years from now people will look back and that book will still be an important book that helped guide the conversation of literature in some way.” Other factors play into the decision, such as grant availability and if the rights are accessibly priced. Open Letter also tries to balance the variety of voices represented each year, and not publish, say, 10 Latin American translations all in a row. Post handles the publishing activities and a lot of the marketing of the books, and teaches three classes within UR’s academic program, which functions like a publishing internship with a lecture-based aspect. Open Letter prints between 3,000 and 5,000 copies of any given title, “and our best-selling books are into the 3,000 numbers,” Post says. Their goal is to keep the books in print indefinitely so that readership keeps expanding to new audiences, and over the course of 10 years, they might sell a total of five or six thousand copies. This may sound like small potatoes, but keep in mind that if any book sells 6,000 copies in one week, it makes the Best Seller list. That’s not a lot, especially when compared to music sales, for example. This is directly tied to the way we consume media — books, unlike TV, films, and music, take time to absorb, and there are more than 30,000 new titles coming out annually, not all of which have the most influential marketing machines pushing them out into our attention. One of the ways Open Letter competes is with the cohesive, stylishly-graphic and beautifully-hued cover designs (by art and operations director Nathan Furl), which look fantastic solo or all lined up together on a book fair table. Because, let’s face it, we frequently do judge books by their covers. Post says there is a growing movement,

even among the larger publishing companies, in finding good works outside of American literature — which sometimes has to do with following patterns of popular response to certain works. After the success of Stieg Larsson’s “The Girl with the Dragon 26 CITY JULY 29 - AUGUST 4, 2015

Tattoo” series, big publishing companies sought out other Scandinavian crime writers. “There’s also been a shift again to interest in Latin American and Spanish writers,” Post says. “These things tend to be cyclical.” Though there are a lot of great writers in the Asian and Middle Eastern countries, their works don’t tend to make their way into translation in a significant way, Post says. “A lot of publishers are seeking things from the Arab world, but there hasn’t yet been a moment where there’s 15 titles coming out and everyone’s talking about it.” Post says this is in part because their publishing systems are organized so differently from those in the West, they don’t have foreign rights sales — which leads to rampant piracy in some cases — and their publishers don’t send catalogs to American publishers the way that German, French, Czech, Polish, and others do. “If you want to find out about a book written in Arabic by a Lebanese writer, you essentially have to go to that writer in that place, and get that book from them,” Post says. His impressions aren’t unfounded — Post has traveled to the Abu Dhabi Book Fair, and others, in pursuit of Arab authors. The publishers are not motivated to sell the books to American and European publishers, he says, because they know how small of an audience there is for translated books. (Remember, that three percent thing?) “For them to go to the London or Frankfurt Book Fair, to set up meetings, to produce catalogs — all of that cost and time and effort would result in maybe one book sale,” he says. In addition, there are issues with censorship in some of the countries in the Arab world, and books don’t always make it across borders. It’s logical to wonder if publishing censored art in America, which already has contention with parts of the Arab world, might sprinkle gasoline on an existent fire, but Post says that’s not a major concern. But on our end, some publishers do practice what he calls “economic censorship,” in which they make the arguably unfair assumption that if the contents of the stories are too foreign — the names too difficult to pronounce, the places and situations without prior context in the readers’ minds — their audiences won’t buy the books. This arguably keeps a population of people foreign, and raises questions about the responsibilities of purveyors of art. “This is kind of worse, in my mind, than worrying about an international incident,” Post says, “assuming your readers are too dumb to figure out the author’s viewpoints on the world, and cutting them off from the experience.”

A Red, White, and Blue Beauty in the 19th Ward 280 Aberdeen Street Rochester’s 19th Ward is a historic and architectural gem. The neighborhood is home to the Olmsted-designed Genesee Valley Park where the Erie Canal intersects the Genesee River. Civil War veterans are buried in the Rapids Cemetery on Congress Avenue. Susan B. Anthony spent her childhood on a farm on what is now Brooks Avenue. And, with four new historic districts listed in the National Register of Historic Places, it is home to some of the city’s best housing stock, including the Colonial Revival style home at 280 Aberdeen Street. A charming front yard garden of daisies, phlox, and lilacs shaded by a mountain ash tree welcomes you to this 1922 period home. The home’s eye-catching blue exterior trimmed with red and white adds more charm, and the front privacy porch accessed only from the interior is an unexpected feature as is the off-center front entrance. Inside, original details like oak floors and gumwood trim blend seamlessly with modern paint colors. Leaded glass doors open to the serene green living room that retains its original wood-burning fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases topped with leaded glass windows. Another set of leaded glass doors open to the spacious dining room with its built-in corner hutch, triple windows, and a chandelier that could be original to the home. The large kitchen has bright white cabinets and stainless appliances. A back porch accesses a shady patio and the fully fenced backyard. A half bath completes the first floor.

The foyer’s paneled staircase leads upstairs. Three spacious bedrooms and a full bath occupy the second floor. The large master in a soft yellow hue has ample closet space. Each of the two smaller brightly painted bedrooms has a closet. A sleeping porch overlooks the backyard. The upstairs hall has original built-in linen storage and a stairway to the third floor that could be used for future expansion space. Additional storage space and the laundry are located in the full basement. The garage with room for two cars complements the design of the home. This period home is close to modern conveniences. The main thoroughfares of Thurston Road, Genesee Street, and Chili Avenue have restaurants and shopping opportunities. The neighborhood is convenient to the University of Rochester and Strong Memorial Hospital. Genesee Valley Park has two golf courses as well as abundant recreational areas. 280 Aberdeen St. is also located in the Sibley-Elmdorf Historic District, allowing new owners to take advantage of the New York State Historic Homeowners Tax Credit program. This 1,628 square foot home is listed at $99,900 with taxes of $3,496. Call Nicholas Perlet of Nothnagle Realtors at 461-6367 for a tour. by Bonnie DeHollander Bonnie is a Landmark Society volunteer.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD

The 90-Minute Day

The whimsical premise of the iconic movie “Groundhog Day” (that someone can wake up every day believing it is the previous day) has largely come to life for a patient of a British psychologist writing recently in the journal Neurocase. Dr. Gerald Burgess’ patient, following anesthesia and root-canal treatment, was left with a memory span of only about 90 minutes and awakens each day believing it is the day he is to report for the same root canal. He has been examined by numerous specialists, including neurologists who found no ostensible damage to the usual brain areas associated with amnesia. The patient is able to manage his day only by using an electronic diary with prompts.

Apparently, “uncooperative” child dental patients (even toddlers) can be totally restrained on a straitjacket-like “papoose board” without parental hand-holding, even during tooth-pulling, as long as the parent has signed a “consent form” (that does specifically mention the frightening practice). A recent case arose in Carrollton, Georgia, but a Georgia Board of Dentistry spokesperson told Atlanta’s WSB-TV that such restraints are permitted (though should have been accompanied by an explicit warning of potential physical or psychological harm). The father of the “screaming” girl said he was initially barred from the exam room and was led to believe, when he signed the consent form, that he was merely authorizing anesthesia.

Wait, What?

(in the French-sensitive province of Quebec, Canada) to announce that 11th-grade French classes would this year be conducted using only the Rosetta Stone computer program. (2) Among the new rules proposed by California’s Occupational Safety and Health Standards agency in May was one to require actors in pornographic movies (whose male actors OSHS has already ordered to wear condoms) to wear goggles — lest bodily fluids splash into their eyes during scenes. (Further, all equipment and surfaces of sets must be decontaminated after each scene and at day’s end.)

Compelling Explanations

(1) The mayor of Whitesboro, New York, defending to a Village Voice reporter in July the 19th-century-based town seal that features a white settler appearing to push down an American Indian man, denied any racism and said the image is “actually” a typical “friendly wrestling (match) that took place back in those days.” (According to Whitesboro’s website, the Native American supposedly uttered, after the “match,” “UGH. You good fellow too much.”) (2) In April, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel ordered the Federal Bureau of Prisons to stop relocating whistleblowing employees to “offices” that were abandoned jail cells. The bureau had insisted that the transfers were not punishment for reporting agency misconduct — even though one of the “offices” had no desk, computer or phone and required the employee to walk past prisoners’ cells to get to work.

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 28 ]

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Use your knowledge, intellect and generous spirit to attract someone’s attention. You’ll do best with partners who share your interest in physical and creative activities. Your versatility and ability to jump in and do your part will make you more attractive to the right partner. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Approach love in a practical, realistic manner. If you don’t like the type of partners you are attracting, focus inward, and make adjustments that will help you attract partners who are more to your liking. Be the best you can be, and don’t settle for anything less.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your uncertainty will work against you when it comes to love. Don’t lose the chance to be with someone because you procrastinate or are reluctant to show how much you care. Talk about your concerns, and you will come to an arrangement that suits both you and your partner. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll have some strange ideas regarding love and commitment. Refrain from being too aggressive or open about the way you feel. Let whoever you are interested in come to you. Taking it slow will enable both you and the one you love time to get to know each other better.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get out and socialize. If you are fun to be with, everyone will want to be by your side. Offering kindness and consideration will be what captures someone special’s heart. Just be your generous, good-natured self, and you’ll have plenty of suitors to choose from. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put extra effort into the way you look and act, and you will be well-received. Don’t waste your time on someone with a sob story or who claims to be in an unhappy relationship. Stick to lovers who are not bound by prior commitments or other personal obligations.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Participate in events that you feel strongly about, and you will meet someone harboring the same beliefs as you. It’s important to pick and choose who you are with based on not chemistry and life goals as well. Don’t opt to be with someone for monetary reasons. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Act on principle and refuse to get involved with someone who has a totally opposite mindset to your own. Don’t let chemistry take over, or you will end up in a relationship with little substance. Physical attraction is enticing, but without a mental connection, it will sour quickly.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): When it comes to love, you’ll change your mind plenty, but for good reason. If you find yourself questioning a long-term connection with someone, you are best to keep looking. There will be plenty of partners to choose from, so don’t worry about the one that you think got away. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may like what you see, but before you get the lowdown on what’s behind the physical aspect of someone you feel connected to, you may lose some of the initial spark. Slow down; time is on your side and will save you from making a mistake you’ll regret.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll be in demand when it comes to hooking up with interesting partners, but your desire to experiment and test the waters will cause some problems along the way. If someone isn’t as adventuresome as you, it’s probably not meant to be. Wait for a match that suits you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The person you are attracted to will be sending you confusing signals. Don’t be fooled by someone who is trying to be what you want instead of showing his or her true colors. Dig deep and find out what makes this person tick before making a commitment.
