We’ll See You at Texas Book Fest This Weekend!

Come hang out with us in Austin for two days of all things books, books, books, and more books (and we’ll be giving away bookish prizes)! We’ll be in Booth 212 with our friends from World Literature Today. By the way, in case we didn’t mention it, there will be lots of books!

Time to start making your holiday gift wish lists, and what better gift than a whole year’s worth of books??

A Deep Vellum subscription is the perfect holiday gift for the literary adventurer in your life. It means up to a whole year of world travels through stories of love, mystery, suspense, excitement, and imagination – stories from the greatest contemporary voices writing in the world today, whose award-winning works are as beautiful as they are important.

Writers like:

Maria Gabriela Llansol, a Portuguese cult figure whose work is studied in academic and literary circles, and whose writing explores philosophy, history, and spirituality throughout time and space.
The Geography of Rebels trilogy heralds the long-awaited English-language debut of celebrated Portuguese writer Maria Gabriela Llansol. Throughout the three novellas, historical figures such as Ana de Peñalosa, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Thomas Müntzer cross time and spatial barriers to become vehicles for a reality that only exists in the mind, exploring freedom of narrative and language in a literary universe of Llansol’s own creation.
Forthcoming in February 2018

Alisa Ganieva, named one of Moscow’s most influential people under 30 by The Guardian Russia, who made waves when she wrote a story under a man’s pen name and only revealed her true identity upon receiving a prestigious award for it.

Told in alternating points of view, Bride and Groom is the tumultuous love story of two young city-dwellers who meet when they return home to their families in small-town Dagestan. By turns haunting, contemplative, and incisively witty, Ganieva’s novel explores Dagestan’s internal conflicts with Islamic radicalization in the aftermath of its Soviet past, tradition in the face of modernity, and the blurred lines between superstition and reality.
Forthcoming in February 2018
Brice Matthieussent, an award-winning translator, who has translated over 200 novels from English to French, including the works of Bret Easton Ellis, Jack Kerouac, Annie Dillard, and Jim Harrison, for which he was awarded the 2013 Prix Jules Janin from the Académie française.
The work of a masterful novelist and translator collide in Matthieussent’s visionary and hilarious debut novel. Following a translator’s increasingly delirious work in translating a mysterious author’s book, Revenge of the Translator is a brilliant, rule-defying exploration of literature, the act of writing and translating, and the often complicated relationship between authors and their translators.
Forthcoming in May 2018
