At Literary Hub, B O D Y-favorite translator Will Firth has compiled a list of 10 books by women writers from the Balkans that he’d like to see in translated into English. As he points out in his introduction, there are very few books in translation and of these, only about 25% are by women writers, so these lists (this Balkan is just the latest) are suggestions for publishers as well as just a general indication that these books are out there…so, no excuses.
The list itself looks fantastic, with a great diversity of subjects. Among the writers is Macedonia’s Rumena Bužarovska, whose story “Scribbles” was published in B O D Y in a translation by Will Firth.
