Marek Šindelka: Material Fatigue (Únava materiálu)

Masterful writing and an amazing reading experience. Material Fatigue is a comprehensive and melodious analysis of the spirit of the time.
Tzum

Material Fatigue is a startling novel about refugees, about fleeing war-torn homes and a journey through uncharted and hostile territory. Employing a poetic language, it tells the story of two brothers, human shadows on the margins of society, seeking sanctuary in a world dominated by brutality and aversion to outsiders. As the brothers’ pain, anxiety and fear intertwine, a universal image of human rootlessness and alienation emerges, and a metaphor of today's Europe, reminiscent of an automated mechanism, an endless production cycle. Šindelka’s novel does not moralize or point fingers, but draws us into the life of another, whilst kindling our sensitivity and empathy for our fellow human beings.

Translated into Slovenian by Nives Vidrih.

Marek Šindelka (1984) is one of the Czech Republic’s leading young authors. His multi-award-winning work has been translated into several languages. His style combines precise language, convincing narrative and a great flair for involving the readers.

Jokha Alharthi: Celestial Bodies

Celestial Bodies is itself a treasure house: an intricately calibrated chaos of familial orbits and conjunctions, of the gravitational pull of secrets.
The New York Times Book Review

Celestial Bodies is a multifaceted story about the expectations of family and society to which people respond differently: some with submissiveness, others with resistance. The story revolves around three sisters and their decisions concerning marriage and love. Mayya marries after a heartbreak; Asma marries from a sense of duty; and Khawla, willing to accept unhappiness in the name of romantic love, chooses to refuse all offers and await a reunion with the man she loves. An emotional, historical, geographical and political study of a microenvironment, Celestial Bodies affords a glimpse at society in all its degrees.

Translated into Slovenian by Barbara Skubic.

Jokha Alharthi (1978) has published two collections of short stories and three novels. She rose to international prominence with Celestial Bodies, a novel that won the Man Booker International Prize in 2019. She obtained a PhD in classical Arabic literature from Edinburgh University and is currently an associate professor at Sultan Qaboos University in the Muscat Governorate. She is the first Omani woman to have a novel translated into English.

Claudia Durastanti: The Stranger (La Straniera)

Claudia Durastanti has written a work of great emotional urgency and elegance.
Books Hunters Blog

The Stranger [La Straniera] is a story about growing up with deaf, emotionally unstable and unprivileged parents. Durastanti, who was born in New York but moved to impoverished rural Basilicata at the age of six, discusses what it was like to grow up with no language. The Stranger is not only an intimate self-portrayal, but also a generational story of a young woman born in the mid-1980s who found refuge from the unbearable daily realities in music, film and art. Rather than hiding behind fiction The Stranger seeks to make sense of life through reflections on identity, class, art and love.

Translated into Slovenian by Vera Troha.

Claudia Durastanti (1984), a writer and translator from English, is considered one of the most accomplished contemporary Italian authors. Her first novel, Un giorno verro a lanciare sassi alla tua finestra, won the Mondello Giovani Award. La Straniera (The Stranger, 2019) was shortlisted for The Strega Prize, Italy's most prestigious literary award, and garnered international attention.

Klarinetist z enim najboljših zvokov v okolju improvizirane glasbe …
Ben Ratliff, NY Times

Houlovi referenci za ta bend in zbirko del sta veliki imeni ter vodji skupin John Carter in Steve Lacy, ki sta navdihnila njegov miselni tok in kompozicijsko/improvizacijsko tkivo. Tvarina Houlovih skladb se ne ozira na omejitve ter ideje o harmonizaciji in strukturi ter zajema od klasične glasbe do jazza in nazaj. V jazzovskem zasuku snuje rezke disonantne tokove in linije v slogu Theloniousa Monka …
