    A Single Swallow
    by Zhang Ling, translated by Shelly Bryant
    China An epic and intimate novel about the devastation of war, forgiveness, redemption, and the enduring power of love.

    '[A] unique premise of ghostly rendezvous among soldiers, combined with first loves for all three men…Clever use of newspaper accounts, military reports, and letters to loved ones advance the plot and complement the dialogue effectively and interestingly…superb…highly recommended.' -Historical Novel Society

    Brazil An exquisite collection of stories exploring the complexity of love between women.

    The King of Warsaw
    by Szczepan Twardoch, translated by Sean Gasper Bye
    Poland The ferociously original story of a city ignited by hate and a man in thrall to power.

    'Streaked with magic realism and dream logic, the novel slides eerily between reality and illusion, 1930s Poland and 1980s Israel, where Moyshe has morphed into a retired Israeli army officer typing out his Warsaw memories. Driven by a ruthless energy, the first of Twardoch's novels to be available in an English translation is astonishing and heartbreaking in equal measure. It never runs out of revelation. A wickedly enthralling novel by one of Poland's emerging literary stars.' -Kirkus Reviews

    by Alexander Münninghoff, Kristen Gehrman
    Netherlands A prize-winning Dutch journalist's unsparing memoir of growing up amid the excesses, triumphs, and devastation of post-World War II Europe.

    'In a family history as moving as it is fascinating, Münninghoff delivers a bewitchingly honest and brave examination of the forces that shaped his father during the tumultuous events of twentieth-century Europe, painting a portrait of how an ordinary man became complicit in evil.' -Liza Darnton, Editor

    Some Days
    by María Wernicke, translated by Lawrence Schimel
    Argentina In this touching story of family and loss, a young girl imagines a passageway in her yard that takes her to a place of safety and love.

    'In Schimel's translation, Wernicke's words are few but well chosen and expertly paced, the sentences split among the pages allowing for unhurried absorption of meaning. Her curved figures are solid, with cream-colored skin; straight, black hair; and short lines for eyes. No mouths are visible, a decision that adds to the contemplative aura. Subtle patterns add interest, and red-ultimately applied to the mother-signals warmth and love…A gentle model for living while missing a loved one.' -Kirkus Reviews
