Best European Fiction 2016 Reviews
Again, a fabulous collection of writing from across Europe. From it a reader learns that Europe is full of souls: bullies, bullied, dispossessed, forsaken, and corrupt. Oh, and writers.My least favorite Rock 'n' Roll songs are those about being a Rock 'n' Roll star. Writers writing about writing is about as interesting. There were moments when I found this collection depressing. The stories were so bleak. The writing was good, though! The stories were palpably bleak! There were some engaging, creative, clever compositions: Alhierd Bacharevic's description of stuttering, Rob Doyle's profane take on his homeland, the story by Harkaitz Cano and Andoni Aduriz combining prose vignettes and recipes, a tale about a shrinking translator by Veronika Simoniti, Where Is Grandma, Where Do You Think She's Hiding is a strong piece on the existence of elderly in society. I hope to read more of Kristina Tóth, João De Melo, Edgar Cantero.
