Jean Grave, “The Adventures of Nono” (1901) – Full translation

I’ve completed a working translation of Jean Grave’s “The Adventures of Nono,” a children’s book written for the Ferrer Schools. It’s a strange and fascinating novel, with a style and vocabularly not quite appropriate in some places for most children, but with sections that seem well wrought for that purpose. I’m going to have to think about this one a bit before I make final decisions about those questions of style and vocabulary in the revision stage, but for now I think this is a pretty good representation of Grave’s work.
