Peirene Now!

Whilst European literature is our bread-and-butter, and we will never stray far from it, in 2015 we encountered a challenge. There were books we wanted to see written – urgent, contemporary fiction – that we couldn’t find. Working only with translations meant that if we wanted to publish something on a specific subject, but couldn’t find anything in Finland or Spain, let’s say, we were stuck. So we decided we needed to launch a new series, in which we would work closely with writers, and commission fiction on current political topics.
