Translated Fiction Roundup

Did you know that only 5% of novels published in the US today are translations? Think of how much we’re missing from vibrant literary cultures around the globe by focusing our attention only on work written in English! Reading world fiction allows you to really explore an unfamiliar culture without leaving your living room. I have recently been on a translated fiction kick and would like to share a few of my new favorites with you. -Augusta

Ways of Going Home Cover Image
By Alejandro Zambra, Megan McDowell (Translator)
$23.00
ISBN: 9780374286644
Availability: Hard to Find
Published: Farrar Straus Giroux - January 8th, 2013

Zambra’s novella opens on the day of the 1985 Chilean earthquake and follows the narrator as he explores his memories of his childhood first love. Part love story, part remembrance of simpler times, the narrative is evocative, beautiful, and, at just under 140 pages, easy to devour in one sitting.

Published: Melville House Publishing - February 19th, 2013

I studied Cognitive Sciences in college and relish any opportunity to read about the awesome, unusual things that our brains sometimes do. Perec’s recently translated dream diary was exactly the sort of thing I was looking for! Inventive, modern, and surreal, this strange little book briefly outlines 124 dreams and gives us the opportunity to explore the ephemeral nature of our sleeping thoughts. This is one I’ll be reading and rereading.

When the lines between fantasy and reality are blurred, things can get dangerous. Paprika, a dream detective, must go into the dream world to prevent mysterious opponents from sabotaging the real world. Thought provoking and entertaining, PAPRIKA is a page turner.

Published: Open Letter - October 23rd, 2012

MAIDENHAIR explores the stories we tell about ourselves in order to get where we want to be, namely through the gates of paradise. Like most thick Russian novels, Shiskin’s work takes on a variety of topics -- truth and fiction, death and life, love and war -- but the sum is greater than its parts. I’m only a third of the way through this one and it’s already one of the best things I’ve read this year. Don’t miss it!

From the creator of children’s book sensation THE AWESOME BOOK comes another rainbow-colored masterpiece. Clayton’s poems cover everything from blue apples to Xavier Xing Xu’s mission to create more words that begin with X to a store that sells colors that’ve never been made. However, they all share the same message: Make magic Do good. Be who you are. Be what you should.

It feels like Jack Prelutsky has a hand in everything related to children’s poetry these days - and we don’t mind one bit! Mr. Prelutsky has written over 50 kid’s poetry collections, but I’VE LOST MY HIPPOPOTAMUS is one of our favorites. You simply can’t find poems about furry wiguanas and yummy pelicanteloupes anywhere else! If you love “I’ve Lost My Hippopotamus,” you should also check out THE NEW KID ON THE BLOCK, A PIZZA THE SIZE OF THE SUN, STARDINES SWIM HIGH ACROSS THE SKY, and another favorite of ours, NIGHTMARES: POEMS TO TROUBLE YOUR SLEEP.

Published: Palazzo Editions - September 1st, 2012

First written in 1867 as a get-well treat for the daughter of a family friend, THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT is now a staple in the children’s poetry canon. This printing of the poem, alongside Lear’s other wonderful, nonsensical pieces such as “The Jumbies” and “The Dong with the Luminous Nose” celebrates the 200th anniversary of Lear’s birthday. Robert Ingpen’s sweeping illustrations seal this little book as a must-have for any sophisticated child’s library.

“What if a piece of toast turned into a piece of ghost?” or even worse, “What if hard-boiled eggs turned into hard-boiled legs?” It is such pressing questions as these that tumble through the pages of Michael Rosen’s latest book of poems. Illustrator Quentin Blake provides drawings for each of Rosen’s off-the-wall verses. A scrumptious read.

Availability: Not On Our Shelves. Usually arrives in 1-5 Days
Published: Philomel Books - February 12th, 2013

We’ve all wanted to escape our hometowns before, but perhaps none of us as much as Josie Moraine. Josie lives and works in a bookstore in the French Quarter in the 1950s, which wouldn’t be so bad if she wasn’t known amongst the locals as the daughter of a prostitute. Just when Josie thinks she may have finally finagled her way into Smith, the Northeastern college of her dreams, the murder of a wealthy tourist in the Quarter threatens to destroy everything Josie knows and loves. Part murder mystery, part portrait of segregated New Orleans and part coming of age story, OUT OF THE EASY is a new Brazos Bookstore favorite.

Their lives are thrown together when Park reluctantly gives Eleanor a seat beside him on the bus and slowly, very slowly, a love for comics, then music, and then each other emerges. Earnestly and honestly told, ELEANOR & PARK will having you wishing - despite yourself - that you could go back and experience first love all over again.

Understanding North Korea

North Korea has been all over the news lately due to Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un’s renewed threats of military action against the United States. Because North Korea is so carefully controlled from within, it has been historically difficult for authors of both fiction and nonfiction to write about it. However, more and more interest in this secret world has spurred writers from all fields to imagine the North Korean experience from the point of view of its silenced citizens. Here are some of our favorite perspectives on this mysterious nation. -Danielle

Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea Cover Image
$17.00
ISBN: 9780385523912
Availability: Not On Our Shelves. Usually arrives in 1-5 Days
Published: Spiegel & Grau - September 21st, 2010

Demick’s intimate portrayal of six ordinary North Korean citizens is visceral and haunting. This book serves as a vivid reminder of how a repressive government can exert control over every aspect of its citizens’ lives. Demick followed her subjects for fifteen years, through Kim Jong-il’s ascent to power and a famine that decimated the population. A gripping, masterful, and beautifully crafted piece of nonfiction.

In our era of Google Maps, no country can hide all of its secrets. Although the prison camps that North Korean elites use to punish and kill undesirables are clearly visible from any personal computer with an internet connection, few people have lived to tell the world about the horrors found within. Shin Dong-hyuk is one of those very few people, and his story, told here in spare and unflinching prose by Blaine Harden, is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Published: Random House Trade - August 7th, 2012

Adam Johnson is one of the few Americans who has been to North Korea, although his trip was of course very carefully orchestrated by the government handlers in charge of his stay. Still, Johnson’s firsthand knowledge of the country came in handy in the creation of this masterful novel, which was one of my personal favorites of 2012. Pak Jun Do, Johnson’s hero, rises from humble origins to the upper ranks of the North Korean state and then is imprisoned for fighting for the woman he loves. A thought-provoking page turner!

Availability: Not On Our Shelves. Usually arrives in 1-5 Days
Published: Dom Publishers - February 28th, 2012

A beautiful slipcased two-volume set that presents the reader with a panoramic overview of North Korea’s capital city. The first volume of this set presents buildings, streets, and squares with no commentary provided, while the second volume places these architectural wonders in their proper cultural context. The eerily empty streets of Pyongyang are odd, beautiful, and haunting. The careful study of propaganda posters alone is worth the price of admission.


Five Myths about Nuclear Weapons Cover Image

Wilson’s passionate plea for disarmament is based around his refutation of five crucial tenets that undergird the popular argument for nuclear proliferation. Although this book is not specifically about North Korea, Kim Jong-un’s threat of nuclear attack makes this book topical and timely, especially for a post-Cold War generation unfamiliar with the intricacies of nuclear policy.

Gems of Small Press Poetry

So much poetry, so little time! With all the new verse coming out every year, keeping up with small press releases can be difficult. Yet it’s the small presses that so consistently publish the most groundbreaking poetry written today! While you may have to search a little harder to find such diamonds in the rough, the payoff is almost always well worth the effort. Who knows? You may just discover your new favorite poet! Here are a few cutting edge titles to get you started this National Poetry Month. -Keaton

Democracy Is Not for the People Cover Image

Published: Truck Books - May 1st, 2012

I was originally drawn to this collection because of its provocative title and cover. Once I actually read the poems, I was stunned and a little taken aback (in a good way). These aren’t poems in the traditional sense. Kaplan’s verses explore the connections -- and divergences -- between the poetic and the political. He appropriates the language of propaganda, employs detailed descriptions of weapons technologies, and adds a generous dash of comic absurdity to produce an astute, irreverent meditation on the nature of political violence. Can poetry effect political change? Can political speech be poetic? These are the kinds of questions Kaplan’s poetry posits for its readers.

Another collection that tests the boundaries of what can be considered poetry, Goldsmith has transcribed TV and radio broadcasts covering some of the most infamous tragedies in American history--the assassinations of the Kennedys and John Lennon, the Challenger disaster, Columbine, 9/11, and the death of Michael Jackson--and recontextualized them as a set of intense prose poems. By rendering in writing what was originally spoken aloud, Goldsmith coaxes forth the underlying emotions inherent in “impartial journalism” and presents an exploration of how media affects our reactions to the larger events that shape our lives.

SEPTEMBER - IMILCHIL WEDDING MOUSSEM

IMILCHIL WEDDING MOUSSEM (IMILCHIL, MOROCCO)

The economy in this Moroccan town is based on the nomadic herding of livestock, and this festival is an opportunity for those herders to return home and celebrate. During this time the town is transformed into multi-day open-air party and market complete with musical events, dances, and fireworks. The division between men and women, which is usually quite strict, is eased somewhat during this time, and single people are permitted to tease and flirt with the opposite sex. This moussem is also a time for matrimony and fertility - mass weddings take place each year.

Thomas Day was an 18th century thinker - and jerk! - who was so particular about what kind of woman he wanted to marry that none of his available options would do. Instead, he adopted two young orphans and raised them to be the perfect wives, down to the very last detail. This one is in certain ways a little dense, but for feminists, Anglophiles, and romance skeptics, it's a strange history that will definitely capture the imagination.

There are a million stories about the world wars in France, England, Germany, and Spain, but there isn't much out there about some of the smaller Eastern European countries that were basically steamrolled on either side by world powers. This is the story of one family in 20th century Hungary - a memoir of an entire clan and what happened to them as a result of war, genocide, and the more mundane problems of love and heartbreak.
