Translated by Caroline Schmidt
Fiction | Independent publishing | In translation
Grove, by German author Esther Kinsky, is a poetic novel in which an unnamed and recently bereaved narrator hikes through the wintry landscape of a small village in south-east Rome, with rich description and thoughts on love, loss and grief. From independent publisher, Fitzcarraldo Editions, who have kept it stunningly simple with their book design; each of their titles uses this sophisticated but striking design in either white or blue. They publish high quality contemporary literary fiction, particularly in translation and we love them here at Destination Books.
