Michael Henry Heim, translation’s *modern* patron saint.



“These books capture … the fragility of lives in limbo, poised between self-assertion and annihilation.”

Tove Jansson’s “Art In Nature” reviewed at Tony’s Reading List.

“An exhilarating and often uncomfortable read.” Emma Garman on Alessandro Piperno’s “Persecution” (tr. Ann Goldstein).

“Eerily readable,” Peter Stamm’s “We’re Flying” (tr. Michael Hofmann) reviewed at Three Percent.

Bernardo Atxaga’s “Seven Houses in France” is ‘a complex novel that coasts along with “deceptive” simplicity.’
