The Modern Literary Novel
This website celebrates the world-wide literary novel since approximately the beginning of the twentieth century, arranged by nationality. It is a personal but extensive survey of literary fiction since around 1900, which will continue to grow.
Here you will find well over 1300 authors writing in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish, or translated into one of those languages, together with biography, bibliography and selected book reviews.
I am a translator by background. What I have put together here is very much a personal collection which I hope will be useful to some people. To find out more about what I have and have not included, and why, please visit the FAQ page.
Wenn du zeigen kannst, wie die Welt ist, ohne Umweg über eine Theorie, dann bist du Künstler. [If you can show what the world is like without getting theoretical, then you are an artist.]
From Peter Rosei’s Die Milchstrasse [The Milky Way]
