#RivetingReviews: January 2022. Introduction by West Camel

We ‘Happy New Year’ all our readers with a collection of reviews of books that demonstrate the rich variety of European writing publishers are now offering English-language readers. 

We welcome a new reviewer to the fold – Corey Anderson, who examines a French novel about the identity conflicts experienced by a second-generation Algerian immigrant

Anna Blasiak reviews a collection of stories that tackles the tough and extremely thorny subject of being Jewish in Poland, while Paul Burke returns with his take on a shocking account of the Holocaust in Serbia.  

Darcy Hurford examines a 1960s biography of an eighteenth-century Ukrainian philosopher, while another new reviewer, Alev Bulut, writes passionately about Istanbul poet Nurduran Duman

Deputy Review Editor Rosie Eyre takes on one of France’s recent prize-winners, and Alice Banks adores a quiet and unexpected Spanish novel from Sarah Mesa

Johanna McCalmont from WorldKidLit is back with a review of Welsh dystopian YA novel, and we round things off with Johny Pitts’ examination of the Black European experience, as reviewed by John Saul. 

Enjoy the wonderful heterogeneity of what’s on offer to us in 2022 – and if you like the sound of any book, please do buy them via our dedicated Bookshop.org page
