Editorial Reviews

Review

“[W]e can be thankful to have so many talented new voices to discover.” (Library Journal)

“Starred Review. With authors ranging from the familiar (Hilary Mantel) to the obscure (Macedonia's Blaze Minevski) to the internationally acclaimed but under-appreciated in the U.S.A. (Spain's Enrique Vila-Matas; Hungary's László Krasznahorkai; Poland's Olga Tokarczuk), the second volume of this lauded series makes good on the first's promise.... With stories from Montenegro, Cyprus, and even tiny Liechtenstein aside works from Turkey, Estonia, and most of Western Europe, this edition packs both a stylistic punch and a satisfying range.” (Publishers Weekly)

Best European Fiction 2011 is the second in what, with any luck, could turn out to be an annual series.... it is easy to appreciate what Mr. Hemon calls 'the depth and width and beauty of human experience' represented here.” (Larry Rohter - The New York Times)

“For one book to range so widely in geographical terms is a praiseworthy achievement in itself; to do so and encompass so many delightfully singular, fascinatingly overlapping talents is an achievement of another order.” (The Wall Street Journal)

About the Author

Aleksandar Hemon is the author of The Question of Bruno, Nowhere Man, and The Lazarus Project, which was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in 2008. Born in Sarajevo, Hemon visited Chicago in 1992, intending to stay for several months. While there, Sarajevo came under siege, and he was unable to return home. Hemon wrote his first story in English in 1995. He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2003 and a “Genius Grant” from the MacArthur Foundation in 2004. He lives in Chicago with his wife and daughter.

Nicole Krauss has been hailed by the New York Times as “one of America’s most important novelists.” She is the author of the international bestseller Great House, a finalist for the National Book Award, and Man Walks Into a Room. Her books have been translated into more than thirty-five languages.

Despite the varied social, cultural, intellectual and ethnic settings of this superb collection, the overwhelming moods are ennui, anomie, and entropy (personal, political and social). I have rarely admired writing more and simultaneously found myself driven into deep gloom by any collection of stories. Read on a sunny day...

Did you know that as American readers, or lovers of fiction; that we only read between 3-5% of writing which comes from other places than our beloved country, The U.S.A.? We are ethnocentric in our myopic choices of what we read. We are so much the poorer for the lack of diversity in our book choices! We are the losers in this world of literature! Think about it... then, take a look at what the remainder of the entire world has to offer you! These "Best Of" books are a great place to start! Robert, The English Professor *I do not lie nor ever exaggerate. Period.
