Unlike my overly ambitious commitments to prior reading challenges, I am going to sign up for the modest Europa Ami level (4 Europa titles by the end of the year). But I may end up upgrading because I already have 5 books on my list:
- Broken Glass Park, Alina Bronsky's critically aclaimed debut novel (translated from the German by Tim Mohr)
- The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery, which spent over a year on the NYT bestseller list (translated from the French by Alison Anderson)
- Hygiene and the Assassin, the first novel by celebrated French writer Amélie Nothomb, now being published in English for the first time (translated from the French by Alison Anderson)
- A Novel Bookstore by Laurence Cossé, about a Parisian bookstore (translated from the French by Alison Anderson)
- You Deserve Nothing by Alexander Maksik, the debut book from Europa's new Tonga print, guest-edited by Alice Sebold
Whether you're new to Europa or a loyal fan, I hope you'll consider joining us!
