My new review out today

Excited to have my review of Fleur Jaeggy’s These Possible Lives published today in the respected online journal Quarterly Conversation. This journal has been a great informer and influence on my reading and collecting habits for years. The editor has overseen some excellent work for quite some time and I really encourage anybody with interest in learning about good literature to check it out as a resource (the back issues are available on the site as well).

The primary focus is reviews and articles about literature in translation.
