This years sees the fifth year of Peirene press publishing the wonderful novellas in translation and on this #translationthurs , I m setting a challenge for you all .They publish three books a year and each year has a theme for the three books that year .I for one have loved every single book I have read from them ,Meike seems to have a real talent to bring three books on a theme every year that although different show different sides of the theme of the year and how this theme can be viewed around europe . Any way its been five years since ,I read the first three books from Peirene so I’ve decide this December I ‘m going to revisit those first three books on the theme of female voices and review them again , to see if time has change my view of them but also to see if the five years since I reviewed them if this blogger has changed in the way I look at books ! I would love for some of my fellow bloggers to join in with just one or even all of the books , for the first time or just to revisit them like my self .The first three are beside the sea by Veronique Olmi which has since been a play .Stone in a landslide by Maria Barbel , any one that has read this blog or followed me on twitter for any time know this is my all time favourite from Peirene , a classic of Catalan fiction and will tie nicely with the two recent books from there I have read .Lastly portrait of the mother as a young woman , a one sentence book that follows a young woman on one afternoon in Rome in 1943 .So just read and post over December if we use a hashtag of #peirene5 then we can see them on twitter .
What is your favourite book from Peirene press !! ?
