The Winter Issue | 2022

With our latest issue B O D Y goes even further in publishing writing in translation from all over Europe, featuring fiction, poetry, essays and interviews with writers from Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Moldova, Catalonia and more.

Even some of the English-language writers presented in this issue reveal a more profound connection to international literature and settings. Welsh writer Alan Bilton discusses his novel The End of the Yellow House, which not only takes place in Russia but is heavily influenced by the Russian masters. There is also an excerpt of Duncan Robertson’s forthcoming novel Visegrad, set in an imaginary Central European country.

Since 2012 we have published translated poems by about 30 Czech poets. This issue will further enlarge our Czech poetry collection by featuring new poems by two talented poets, both appearing in English for the first time.

The Winter Issue will be coming out throughout February so keep your eyes peeled for some great new writing.
