Something of a landmark number this week, as Anneliese Mackintosh brings us the book she wants to sing of:
[redacted] is part of the Dedalus Euro Shorts series. Apparently, this series is for ‘short European fiction which can be read from cover to cover on Euro Star or a short flight.’ Upon seeing this, I must admit, I felt slightly less queasy. At a time when the future of Europe is so uncertain, it felt reassuring to be holding a book by a publisher who appears to support cultural exchange, and the sharing of art and ideas between countries.
Sign up for The Unsung Letter here if you haven’t already. A once a week missive in which a different book lover tells you of a book you must read but might not have even heard of. The archive is lengthy and beautiful.
Sidenote: Mackinosh’s new novel has just come out (link in the letter) and I’ve just read a good review of it over here, if you fancy learning more.
