Trafika Europe is so pleased to announce the launch of a modest European bookshop on our site!
We’re starting with a small, choice selection of fine European literary titles, working carefully with some terrific independent publishers so you can know that every title in our shop is special — a real treasure trove.
Please check out our brief (2 1/2-minute) welcome video above. In lieu of a shop assistant, it highlights some current shop offerings, to help you find that special treat for you or someone you love.
Shipping is available worldwide in most cases, direct from publishers or their distributors. Please note that some publishers will be shipping your titles from the UK, and others from the US. So there can be great variety in shipping cost per item depending on your location.
We’ll be expanding this shop over the coming months, to include many more European titles and types of offerings — more news about that soon.
Let us be your go-to place for fine literature from Europe. And thanks very much for supporting our efforts here at Trafika Europe with a purchase in our shop.
Trafika Europe is curating a new European literary events calendar, for events in, from and about the 47 Council of Europe countries.
“We’ll Not Die in Paris”
The fourteen sel
ections in this volume—from seven women and seven men, seven poets and seven fiction writers—represent some of the most accomplished writing in new translation from Europe today; this volume opens a window onto some emerging contours of European identity. Former ASCAP director of photography Mark Chester complements the writing with sumptuous black-and-white photos from across Europe.
Born in the US, raised in Turkey, a graduate of Harvard and now a transplant to the UK, she’s been blessed with multiple cultural perspectives over her career. This is combined with unusually fine sensitivity as a literary translator and writer. She’s translated five of Nobel Laureate Orhan Pamuk’s novels from the Turkish, published seven novels of her own, three works of non-fiction, and contributes to numerous major journals, including The Guardian, The Observer, The Independent, The Sunday Times, The New York Review of Books, and so on.
For a taste of her literary translation, you can check out “The Bohça”, a short story by formative Turkish writer Sait Faik Abasıyanık, which we published in our recent
