Summary
Historically, English-language readers have been great fans of European literature, and names like Franz Kafka, Gustave Flaubert, and Thomas Mann are so familiar we hardly think of them as foreign at all. What those writers brought to English-language literature was a wide variety of new ideas, styles, and ways of seeing the world. Yet times have changed, and how much do we even know about the richly diverse literature being written in Europe today? Best European Fiction 2010 is the inaugural installment of an annual anthology of stories from across Europe edited by Bosnian novelist and MacArthur "Genius-Award" winner Aleksandar Hemon with dozens of editorial, media, and programming partners in the U.S., U.K., and Europe
