The Book of Anna
Publisher: Coffee House Press
Carmen Boullosa’s reputation as a brilliant writer of historical epic, etc., precedes her. Her fan base has been built from previous US releases such as Texas, and we expect fans of translation, etc., to be equally excited about this latest novel.
Carmen lives in NY and is eager to do events, which is rare for those on our translated literature list.
This book plays with our idea of a literary classic, fiction, and folktale. For anyone interested in, or indeed desperate for more, Anna Karenina, this book is for them. Carmen deftly weaves fiction and historical fact into a blatantly feminist and unapologetic liberation novel.
