About

Literalab got its start in December 2010 as a blog written by Michael Stein for the Prague-based magazine he then worked for. Now cast off into the world together the blog and its blogger appear here in a new format – offering news, book reviews, interviews and assorted essays from the occasionally absurd but always stimulating Central and Eastern European world of writing.

Michael Stein works as a journalist/writer in Prague and has written for a number of European and American magazines. His literary and cultural articles have been published on Asymptote, Absinthe: New European Writing, and other publications. His fiction appeared most recently in The Missing Slate and Drunken Boat and has previously been published in journals such as McSweeney’s, Pindeldyboz and Café Irreal among others. He is an editor at B O D Y and curates its Saturday European Fiction series.

    I really enjoy all of your posts. Even though the NYRB is doing a good job with publishing books in translation of central/eastern European writers, the literary world in the States is definitely deficient in novels from this part of the world. Thank you again for sharing all of this information on your blog!

    I read your article about Burkhart List’s search for lost art in a cave on Germany. That was a year ago. I can’t find any information about the search. Did it take place? Did they find anything? Thanks.

      Sorry, I have no idea and haven’t seen anything further about it either.
