This bundle includes three novels in translation chosen by Daunt bookseller Chris.
Visitation by Jenny Erpenbeck and translated from the German by Susan Bernofsky is a novel that takes in all the human drama which unfolds over the 20th century on a single plot of land in Brandenburg.
Total Chaos by Jean-Claude Izzo and translated from the French by Howard Curtis, has all the hallmarks of classic noir fiction. Fabio Montale has grown up in a rough area of Marseilles. Now a detective, he finds he has personal connections to the case he is working. It’s a gripping journey through the streets of the city which tourists never see.
