hot tips!

I've been given a number of leads on publications regarding interpreting:

Andy Gilles' site, especially the reading list and particularly CIRIN. This is a treasure trove of academic articles on conference interpreting, listed in biennial bulletins.

Some recent professional publications of interest:

How Should We Interpret;

Babels and Nomad – Observations on the barbarising of communication at the 2005 World Social Forum (might be interesting to those who went to the presentation on this at the World Systems Conference at UMass this spring);

Does an interpreter know a little about a lot, but a lot about nothing?;

La voix de Madame,

Also I was encouraged to find works by Pat Longley.

I was Google-ing the name Tony Mafia. I am about to hang two of his paintings in my home. I came upon your post and wondered what place it is you are writing about? A place covered with Tony Mafia paintings. How magical.

My husband Jack Poet and I were old friends of Tony's.

Do you have any information on where his wife Anna and their kids are now?

Hi Tricia,

I spent a lovely time with Annmarie at her home, where I enjoyed perusing Tony's paintings at leisure. I've emailed her to let her know about your query. Good luck! And how wonderful that you have two of Tony's paintings; they are extraordinary. :-)

I have two Tony Mafia originals from the early 60's. Tony gave them to my uncle as payment for his restaurant bill at K's on Vine street in Hollywood,CA. My uncle gave them to me several years ago saying they were quite valuable. I have been trying to find out about them for several months now but can't seem to get much more than what is said about him on the web. Any info would be appreciated and any insight as to their value would be of intereast as well.

Hi Mike,

His work is marvelous, isn't it? And - even though I didn't meet him personally - it sounds like what I've heard of him to have given them in barter. :-)

I'm sure their value is increasing. I remember when I saw his work I did some websearching too.... not much out there. Maybe we'll get something started?

I'll let Annmarie know about your inquiry.

What a great way to discover friends of my late husband and also to find new aficionados of his work. Thanks Steph
