This is probably something for the P&R group I suspect!

Probably. Although language is never apolitical. For example, I was fascinated by Issybird's discovering that the book I nominated is only $3 at Kobo India. That discovery fits very nicely with comments made by its author in the introduction, wherein he spoke about the devaluation/erasure of Urdu in India. I think any thread about books in translation will inevitably involve some socio-political commentary for context

Well, I don't see anything jumping out at me, and my own nomination, Foreigner isn't getting any love, so I'll use my last ticket for The Left Hand of Darkness.
