Alex has lived in Europe for twelve years, is fluent in five languages,

the United Nations, and French, Spanish, and German cultural agencies.
He has taught for the NYU Translation Studies Program, where
he now serves as Adjunct Lecturer in translation history,

for the precise spatial and temporal relationship
between places, objects, and processes
remains important for him and played
a role in writing this book.
