Here's what you say about us...

Called the new Ibsen in the German press, and heralded throughout Western Europe, Jon Fosse is one of contemporary Norwegian literature's most important writers. In 2000, his novel Melancholy won the Melsom Prize, and Fosse was awarded a lifetime stipend from the Norwegian government for his future literary efforts. In 2015, Ladbrokes listed him as having 10/1 odds to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.



Nathaniel Davis is an assistant editor at Dalkey Archive Press. He is also a translator and holds a PhD in comparative literature from the University of Pennsylvania.

"[W]e can be thankful to have so many talented new voices to discover." ?Library Journal




"The anthology Best European Fiction 2016 combines 29 different writers from across the continent, here translated into English. Concerned largely with politics or literature, the standout story is Veronika Simoniti's pertinent "A House of Paper," in which a translator is convinced her body is shrinking as some sort of penance for her lifetime of 'counterfeiting […] in another language.'" ?Ruth Gilligan, The Irish Independent
