Pierre Joris's translation of Breathturn by Paul Celan has just been reprinted by Green Integer. (Pierre has translated, quite wonderfully, three volumes of Celan's late poetry: Breathturn, Threadsuns, and Lightduress, all with Green Integer.)
Thanks for the update. The Joris translation is preferable to John Felstiner's, even though the latter's is quite fine. Glad to know too that Green Integer is still alive and bristling. I've worries that it might go the way of its predecessor, Sun & Moon.
