The Continental Literary Magazine

A new magazine has entered the Central European literary firmament, The Continental Literary Magazine, a quarterly print magazine with an excellent website brought out by the Petőfi Cultural Agency. Their focus is bringing Hungarian and Central European writing into English and is led by editor-in-chief Sándor Jászberényi, whose own fiction has been published extensively in B O D Y.

The online selection from the inaugural issue includes fiction by three Hungarian writers (Eszter Babarczy, János Háy, Gábor T. Szántó) as well as a Polish short story by Hubert Klimko-Dobrzaniecki. Non-fiction includes pieces by Americans Roxanne Gay and Lance Henson, Nigerian-American Tope Folarin and author of Pixel, Krisztina Tóth. The poetry included is by Slovak poet Mila Haugová.

The issue is titled “Prejudice” and not only do the literary works reflect the issue but the photography by Hungarian photographer Ádám Magyar. Needless to say, numerous translators of renown have participated in making the issue as well.

The Continental will be on sale in major bookstores in the United States and Central Europe.
