  • A Hand Full of Water

    by Tzveta Sofronieva $16.00
    Poetry from White Pine Press
    Translated from German

    “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.

  • A Peaceful Color From the Silence

    by Gulnar Ali Balata $17.00
    Poetry from Červená Barva Press
    Translated from Kurdish

    “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.

    by Marianne Koluda Hansen $15.00
    Poetry from Spuyten Duyvil
    Translated from Danish

    “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

  • Ballerina, Ballerina

    by Marko Sosic $15.95
    Fiction from Dalkey Archive Press
    Translated from Slovenian

    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.

    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.
