So it's day 16 of #PENadvent, but it's also Star Wars weekend aka time to think about our favourite myth-infused quests!
If you like stories about men on ships who risk the lives of their companions while encountering magic, creatures and their own limitations, you will love Emily Wilson's brilliant new translation of Homer's The Odyssey. Absolutely no porgs in that one though...

It's day 7 of #PENadvent and we've ended up in icy territory! PEN member @rachelphilippa is currently reading - and loving - Yoko Tawada's 'Memoirs of a Polar Bear', translated by Susan Bernofsky.

Day 5 of #PENadvent is a short, unnerving read from Argentina: our very own Alice recommends 'Fever Dream' by Samanta Schweblin, translated by Megan McDowell. A young woman is dying in a hospital. A boy sits beside her and asks her questions. The result is both uncomfortable and intriguing. Check out our SoundCloud for an interview with Samanta Schweblin at a recent PEN event (link in bio).

Our translation manager and resident history nerd Theodora is up for day 3 of our PEN advent calendar of books from around the world. Elisabeth Åsbrink's '1947. When Now Begins' is about how one year was the foundation of much we take for granted today. Translated from Swedish by Fiona Graham, this is a great book for a rainy Sunday and our third #PENadvent recommendation. *

I know that, officially, it isn‘t winter yet. But it‘s snowing outside. And it is December. And I‘ve been looking forward to holding this literary treasure in my arms for quite some time now. So no; it is not to early to read Ali Smith‘s new novel. ❄️ 📖

For day 2 of our #PENadvent, our campaigns manager Cat with a dog-related recommendation 🐈🐕 This short novel by Mexican author Juan Pablo Villalobos is one of her favourites. Translated by Rosalind Harvey, 'I'll Sell You A Dog' features tacos, boredom and much hilarity.

Yes, we're doing this! It's day one of our PEN advent calendar, 24 days of book recommendations from around the world. Hannah kicks us off with 'Freedom Hospital', a graphic novel about a clandestine hospital in Syria by Hamid Sulaiman, translated by Francesca Barrie. As the cover suggests, this is a story told in beautiful, stark black-and-white images. Find out more about this and other great books on the World Bookshelf (link in bio).
