New Swedish Books
Never before has New Swedish Books presented this many books, selected by so many knowledgeable literature enthusiasts, as it does this autumn. As the critics pointed out, in one of the panel diskussions recorded in connection with the Gothenburg Book Fair, it has been a fantastic year for Swedish literature!
Swedish Literature Exchange invited a group of critics to write and talk about their favourite books published so far this year. Daring prose, dynamic non-fiction, future classic children’s and young adult literature, novels that shake their readers up – it’s all there!
What’s brand new this year is the section called ‘Jury’s Choice’. In this section we have included books represented by Swedish literary agencies. The agencies have nominated titles, from which the Swedish Literature Exchange grants committee have made a selection. Here too we find an equally dazzling array of books that all deserve to be published in translation.
Read more about all these titles in the New Swedish Books autumn issue! In addition to the publication you can also hear the critics talk about their selections in our book talks below.
