Pushkin Press fortnight MK2 Feb 13-28 2017


It was three years ago I did the first Pushkin press fortnight in 2014. As a publisher whose books I have enjoyed not just reading but also there design . Since the original fortnight Pushkin Have grown with a number of new imprints Pushkin Vertigo doing crime fiction One of their books  I recently saw was  by Frederic Dard,which  caught my eye , he was a friend of Simenon he wrote nearly as many as his fellow writer with 200 books in french.Pushkin Children whihc has been publishing the Dutch fantasy series by Tonke Dragt. Pushkin Collections this is where  all those Tranlsated classics we all love . The most recent is The Odessa stories by Isaac Babe was a paperback of the week in the Guardian l. One the best of english lit The fisherman was on the booker list from this imprint. As for me I’m looking forward to reading The Evenings by Gerald Reve for the fortnight.Why now you ask well it is thanks to Lizzy from Lizzy Siddal  who herself is trying to cut her TBR pile and in doing so found a number of Pushkin books so ask me if I would do a second Pushkin press fortnight , SO the last 15 days in Feburary if you could try and read one of more books from Pushkin press it would be great . Have you a favourite from them ? Please leave a comment of post on twitter with the Hashtag#ppf2

    Sounds good Stu. I’ve read one Vertigo title but also have Bonita Avenue by Peter Buwalda on my shelf and never quite finished it last year because it’s massive. May pick it up again.

    I think I have a few on my shelves (I’m trying not to get anything new for the first 3 months of the year). Maybe Teffi’s Subtly Worded – I’ve been meaning to read that for a while now…

    Great idea Stu. I love Pushkins and I have some I haven’t read so I’ll try to join in!

    Glad I could persuade you, Stu. Thank for aiding the cause. Honestly have so many Pushkins to read that it’s criminal ….

    BTW – I cannot believe that the 1st PP fortnight was 3 years ago. Where does the time go?

    Yes, I subscribed to PP last year and I have some on the TBR. I’m in.

    ‘The Evenings’ is one to look forward to, and I believe Pushkin have four Japanese novellas out very soon…

    Great idea, Stu. I would love to join in, but my shelves are looking a bit short on Pushkin books right now (the Dard I’ve just reviewed may have been my last one). Like many other bloggers, I’m trying to hold off from buying any more books at the moment, but I shall follow the reviews with interest.

    Oh count me in – I’ve a few PP’s outstanding so will definitely fit one in… hopefully more.

    I have Tonke Dragt and Teffi in the TBR, so I’ll endeavour to read at least one of them next month.

    I’d love to join in, though I find that I don’t have many Pushkin titles lying in my TBR pile as I tend to read them!
