  • Captivity

    by György Spiró $14.99$29.99
    Fiction from Restless Books
    Translated from Hungarian

    A literary sensation, György Spiró’s Captivity is both a highly sophisticated historical novel and a gripping page-turner. Set in the tumultuous first century A.D., between the year of Christ’s death and the outbreak of the Jewish War, Captivity recounts the adventures of the feeble-bodied, bookish Uri, a young Roman Jew.

  • Daniel’s Beetles

    by Tony Bianchi $11.30

    Translated from Welsh

    Daniel’s Beetles is the author’s translation of his prizewinning novel, Pryfeta. Daniel is six. One afternoon, while playing with insects in the garden, he sees his father fall to his death.

Then he meets Cerys and Dr Bruno and discovers a bold new way of regaining control over the past.

  • Demian

    by Hermann Hesse $12.49
    Fiction from Peter Owen Publishers
    Translated from German

    Published shortly after the First World War and before Siddharta and Steppenwolf, Demian marks a significant turning point in Hesse’s literary career. It is the first time Hermann Hesse used the novel overtly as a means to explore ideas of the self, the meaning and purpose of existence, as well as his own ideas and interpretations of theosophy and Eastern Philosophy. As such it is ranked among the finest of his works.

  • Divan of Ghalib

    by Nachoem Wijnberg $18.00
    Poetry from White Pine Press
    Translated from Dutch

    Wijnberg creates an astounding edifice filled with mirror-rooms and concealed doors; the entrance may not be easy to find but inside there are treasures of the utmost importance. The further you go, the more you find. The result is one of astonishing richness as he takes on the original Divan of Ghalib and renders it his own much as Robert Bly absorbed the lessons of Ghalib and created his own Ghazals.

  • Europe in Sepia

    by Dubravka Ugresic $13.95
    Essays from Open Letter Books
    Translated from Croatian

    Hurtling between Weltschmerz and wit, drollness and diatribe, entropy and enchantment, it’s the juxtaposition at the heart of Dubravka Ugresic’s writings that saw Ruth Franklin dub her “the fantasy cultural studies professor you never had.”

  • Everything Happens as It Does

    by Albena Stambolova $12.95
    Fiction from Open Letter Books
    Translated from Bulgarian

    Albena Stambolova’s idiosyncratic debut novel, Everything Happens as It Does, builds from the idea that, as the title suggests, everything happens exactly the way it must. In this case, the seven characters of the novel—from Boris, a young boy who is only at peace when he’s around bees, to Philip and Maria and their twins—each play a specific role in the lives of the others, binding them all together into a strange, yet logical, knot.

    The forces of science, human error, and power run amok collide in a wildly inventive, funny, and razor-sharp political satire about Putin’s Russia, from one of the country’s most fearless journalists.
