written by Yasmina Reza, translated by John Cullen - Fiction

The 20 interlocking vignettes in this slim novel by Yasmina Reza, author of the plays “Art” and “God of Carnage,” focus on the family lives of more than two-dozen characters. Couples bicker over such trivialities as the purchase of the wrong cheese at a grocery store or the playing of a wrong suit in bridge. As in much of Reza’s work, these conflicts are catalysts for larger arguments and the release of long-suppressed resentments.

written by Carlos Zanon, translated by John Cullen - Fiction, Noir, Suspense, Thriller

THE BARCELONA BROTHERS, Carlos Zanón's first novel to be published in English (thanks to the efforts of translator John Cullen), is a hard look at what people are capable of when they have no other options, and a portrait of a modern, multicultural Barcelona.
