Welcome to the first installment of Words of the World, a new semi-regular feature we’ll be running to highlight newer, important works of literature in translation from around the globe. You may come across some overly familiar names within these posts from time to time, but ultimately our aim is to draw more attention to some great authors and great titles that you may have missed, and we’ll do it one country at a time.
Are these books the new classics? Time will tell. Either way, they’re most certainly some of our personal favorites from the past few years.
