In the beginning of this year, the publication of the memoirs of Ivan Nabokov--a flamboyant editor who has been a driving force in the success of foreign literature in France --has somewhat rebranded the world of French letters, evoking it as…

There are novels that we read for pleasure, almost without even realizing we are reading them--stories in which we find a vague echo of our everyday lives, our past, and the times around us. Books that gently shake us but while always giving us a flattering reflection of ourselves. Reading a novel by Marie NDiaye is an entirely other experience;…

Besides a recommendation from a close friend, the best way to discover a new favorite book for me comes neither from a review nor a share nor a tweet--but rather from discovering a small publishing house with a great list and simply diving in.

Of the many excellent books that have emerged in this recent literary season, none are as unusual or visually striking as the new work by Nobel Prize-winner J.M.G. Le Clézio, Le flot de la poésie continuera de couler.

This short and blistering novel is richly poetic, its language overflowing with the despair and futility that only the injustice of history can bring.
