New Europe Writers
Edited by Lidia Vianu
Contemporary Literature Press is publishing now a second volume in the series New Europe Writers. The first one was the three-language volume Warsaw Tales, which the graduate students of the MA Programme for the Translation of the Contemporary Literary Text translated into Romanian. It appeared in English, Romanian and Polish. Bucharest Tales, which becomes available to online readers now, was sub-edited, proofread, illustrated and partly translated into English by graduates of the same MA Programme.
The series New Europe Writers began in 2005, and already has five books: Tales from Warsaw, Prague, Bucharest, Budapest and Ljubljana. It was started by John a’Beckett (born in Australia, living in Warsaw), James G. Coon (born in the United States, having lived for ten years in Poland, currently located in Bangkok), and Andrew Fincham—English poet. Continuare
