Over the past few months, I’ve been contributing monthly reviews to the excellent European Literature Network, a project led by journalist and champion of all things literary and European, Rosie Goldsmith.
My recent reviews include a feature-length piece on Stephanie Heuet & Arthur Goldhammer’s adaptation of Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time: Swann’s Way, which I found visually appealing, but satisfying only insofar as it reminds me of the genius of the original.
My first experience of Estonian author Rein Raud was when I selected one of his short stories for Dalkey Archive’s Best European Fiction 2015. His novella The Brother, is the first piece of his long-form writing to appear in English. I reviewed it for Eurolitnetwork and I was rapt by this ‘exquisite literary puzzle’.
