The Nordic Riveter 0

In autumn 2017 I once again edited (with Riveter-in-Chief Rosie Goldsmith) The Riveter, the European Literature Network’s print magazine.

This edition was our longest so far, and was devoted to literature from the Nordic countries. Esteemed Norwegian crime writer Gunnar Staalesen was our guest editor, and we were honoured to include content from luminaries from across the region, including an exclusive extract from celebrated Icelandic author, Sjón’s Codex 1962.

Free copies of the magazine were distributed at events across the UK – and in Europe too.

Interview with The Book Trail 0

In August, I was interviewed by award-winning book blogger The Book Trail. The focus of the Q&A was The Riveter magazine, which I edit, and the European Literature Network, which I write and edit for; but we also discussed my work for Orenda Books and how I came to work in publishing and arts journalism.

An Interview with Translator Don Bartlett 0

In September my interview with Norwegian < English translator, Don Bartlett was published on the  ELit Literature House Europe website and the European Literature Network.

I have worked with Don on his translations of Gunnar Staalesen’s crime novels for Orenda Books; and in preparation for the interview, I took my first plunge into Karl Ove Knausgaard’s remarkable work.

The result was a comparison between two contemporary greats of Norwegian literature. The results were fascinating.
