Nest of Worlds
by Marek S. Huberath, translated by Michael Kandel
Nest of Worlds is the first novel to appear in English from Polish science fiction master Marek S. Huberath. A metafictional adventure through a dystopia that owes as much to Borges, Saramago, and even Thomas More as it does to Stanislaw Lem, Nest of Worlds is a meditation on the narrative nature of reality, the resilience of love, and an inquiry into the darkest aspects of the human psyche and the organization of civilization.
Song of Shadows
by Xiao Hai, translated by Zhu Yu
Amazon I Barnes and Noble I Kobo
With delicacy and precision, the major Chinese poet Xiao Hai conjures shadows to explore philosophical questions of illusion and reality, history and time, art and language. Composed of several hundred interconnected poems, Xiao's collection is, in his words, "a dynamic, creative, and open system of experience." Deftly translated by Zhu Yu, Song of Shadows brings Wordsworth and Whitman into artful conversation with classical Chinese culture.
