    I don’t know any of the books on the YPL longlist.

    On the Translated Literature longlist I’ve read only (and loved) Trick, by Domenico Starnone (I need to review it here!). Naturally, Olga Tokarczuk’s Flights keeps getting attention (see Paul’s review here). I have a few of the others and would love to get to them, but happy to hear all of your thoughts on these lists!

    I absolutely LOVED Starnone’s Ties. I will be reading Trick as soon as my local library finishes processing it. No one else has put a hold on it. That’s good for me, but still disappointing.
