I was recently commissioned by Rosie Goldsmith to write a feature review for her European Literature Network website of Dalkey Archive’s Best European Fiction 2016 and Trafika Europe’s Essential New European Literature.
These two fascinating collections bring together new work from authors and translators across Europe. Having edited Best European Fiction 2015 for Dalkey, I was particularly interested to see what 2016’s edition held, and how the new publication from Trafika Europe compared. I wasn’t disappointed.
