Several bloggers have come up with lists of recommendations and links to reviews for Women in Translation Month, and I was very keen to follow the trend – until, that is, I realised that I actually had a fair few links to add…
Having given up on the idea of linking to all my reviews of women in translation, I opted for the next best thing, a (fairly) representative top twelve of the reviews that have appeared on the blog over the past few years of books by non-Anglophone female writers. While the geographical grouping leaves a little to be desired (my focus on German, Japanese and – more recently – Korean literature means that these languages dominate), these were the ones I thought needed to be included in my top dozen 🙂 So, in order of appearance on the blog….
Das Gemeindekind (The Parish Child) by Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
Some great books there, all worth hunting down and devouring – so, what are you waiting for? 😉
