We have a new Aira book! His 2010 novella The Divorce, translated by Chris Andrews, has just been published in English by New Directions.
Jack Spicer's After Lorca is a wonderful collection of poetry, poetry in translation, and poetry theory. I loved it!
Happy short story month! To celebrate
What a treat! I adored Elizabeth von Arnim's The Enchanted April, which I read as part of my 2021 NYRB Classics List of Betterment.
Last month NYRB Classics released Natalia Ginzburg's novellas Family and Borghesia in one lovely edition. It's my year of reading Ginzburg!
Trevor and Betsy look at Alice Munro's "Soon," from Runaway.
It's not just a curiosity! Here are my thoughts on Roberto Bolaño's Cowboy Graves, translated from the Spanish by Natasha Wimmer.
Cynthia Ozick's Antiquities is out today! It's a wonderful little book about the large past and the short future.
Robert Walser's Little Snow Landscape, recently published by NYRB Classics, is the perfect book to start as we get into spring. It will also be perfect for summer, fall, and, believe it or not, winter. I recommend it in perpetuity.
Last year NYRB Classics released Natalia Ginzburg's novellas Valentino and Sagittarius in one lovely edition. I loved them!
