Many of the stories in "Rough Translations" have been anthologized and adapted for radio performance.A master of the complexities of language, Molly Giles writes of the missed connections in life and of the rough translations that we employ when we try to convey, through words and gestures, what we are thinking and what we want from our loved ones.
