“Opportunities” by Claudine Jacques

Today my translation of Claudine Jacques’ short story, “Opportunités” / “Opportunities” was published by The AALITRA Review in Melbourne. It’s about a young Frenchman who unexpectedly inherits a New Caledonian fortune, and the observations he makes of islanders who need possessions and those who don’t.

“Opportunités” is from her award winning 2020 collection Caledonia Blues.

You can read the story in both English and French, side by side, along with other translations and articles, here.
