n 1995, when promoting Total Khéops(Europa Books) Jean-Claude Izzo said: "Marseille is the only city on earth where you can show up for the very first time, penniless and with just a suitcase and yet claim: I am home". 25 years later, Hadrien Bels's debut novel, Cinq dans tes yeux, comes as a scathing refutation of this remark.

Men might die younger, and yet, they do live longer” Chloe Deleaume could have made this quote by Camille Laurens her own (Who You Think I Am, Other Press).

Ananda Devi, a remarkable and unique Mauritian author, has long been an extraordinary voice for those left on the margins of society: minorities, the elderly, the poor. Her latest novel, The Living Days just out with Feminist Press, in an excellent translation by Jeffrey Zuckerman is no exception.
