Again I am hoping this year’s thread proves to be another successful one in terms of discovering some new authors/books.

Deemed success, have amassed quite a bit from this, some mentioned here some not: a large number of translated Asian poetry volumes, a few translated Arabic novels, a forgotten novel by a Caribbean legend, a greater appreciation (and obtaining all his works in Fr) of a Kurdish-Syrian writer….


And as a last post on this thread:

96 year old Nanos Valaoritis, the last direct living link to the founders of Surrealism
Publishing since just before ww2 (and still publishing in his 90s).

Here is the great man reading Homer in his own translation and the original Ancient Greek:

No, he will not win the Nobel, and he cares not for such things, but if the unexpected arises, then I will think they are finally getting it.
