A Hand Full of Water$16.00
“Tzveta Sofronieva’s poetry sparkles, not in her native Bulgarian, but in German; like her compatriot Bulgarian Julia Kristeva, she changed tongues to reach a wider world. Her A Hand Full of Water is the most compelling volume in German verse since the work of Ingeborg Bachman and Hans Magnus Enzensberger.” — Willis Barnstone
A Peaceful Color From the Silence$17.00
“Gulnar Ali Balata’s fourth volume of poetry… is an intimate gift by a mature poet infused with love for her tattered homeland of Iraqi Kurdistan. Her pen ripples with sparkling rivers and her expectant heart wrings with sadness as she infuses her poems in shooting stars and sweet dew, as ‘tears braid Fate’s threads… shoulder / the coffin of [her] childhood.'” — Molly Lynn Watt
Alberta and Jacob$12.65
Combining mastery of style and characterization with brilliant descriptive writing, this powerful story of a young woman’s rebellion is universally regarded as one of the greatest novels to come from Scandinavia, and is without doubt one of the greatest bildungsromans ever written.

“The whole blooming and exasperating world is here in Hansen’s delightfully associative poems… Hansen’s voice is full of wit, longing, irony (both personal and political), and tender detail about the absurdity of being human…” – Patrick Donnelly
The narrator of this novel is Ballerina, a fifteen-year-old with the cognitive faculties of a child, and each of its fifteen chapters begins with her first wetting her bed and thereby greeting a new day. Drawing comparison to William Faulkner in its expressionistic depiction of Ballerina’s interior world, this is a classic of contemporary Slovenian literature: a hugely popular exploration of a character whose world is so divorced from what we think of as reality.
Behind the Station$13.95
In this second book of Arno Camenisch’s Alp trilogy, Behind the Station, is told through the eyes of two young brothers growing up in a small, secluded village in a valley flanked by the alpine mountains. Written in the same style as “The Alp,” we start to believe that there’s little difference between the children and the adults in this village, save for their love for mischief and ghost stories.
Best European Fiction 2017$17.00
This anthology is the essential resource for readers, critics, and publishers interested in contemporary European literature.
Beyond Elsewhere, a verse narrative that speaks of exile, is the odyssey of a soul in search of the absolute, the epiphany of being in love that represents a moment in eternity, at once of distress and salvation, a beacon on one’s path.
Bilbao – New York – Bilbao$12.56
Bilbao–New York–Bilbao takes place during a flight to New York and tells the story of journeys by three generations of the same family. The key to the book is Liborio’s fishing boat, the Dos Amigos: who are these two friends, and what is the nature of their friendship? Through letters, diaries, emails, poems and dictionaries, Kirmen creates a mosaic of memories and stories that combine to form a homage to a world that has almost disappeared, as well as a hymn to the continuity of life. It is also a reflection on the art of writing, and lies between life and fiction.
