More summer reading recommendations. . .

If you really want to travel the world this summer, Three Percent has just posted a great list of recommended summer reading. All the books are recent fiction published in translation and were culled from suggestions by the panelists who will be judging the Best Translated Book Award. It's an extensive, luscious, intriguing list including my personal favourite - Hans Fallada's Every Man Dies Alone. Gerbrand Bakker's The Twin is also on the list - this novel was recently recommended to me by another international literature aficionado (thanks Brad) and I plan to tackle it soon. You can read the full list here.
