At Istros Books, we believe quality has no borders.

Istros Books is an independent publishing house that - in its short history - has managed to prove itself at the forefront of discovering and promoting literature from South East Europe. We are proud to have published the work of the leading philosopher, Slavoj Žižek, and of having no less than 5 EU Prize for Literature winners on our list. 

Having won successful grant bids from, among others, the European Union Culture Fund, English PEN and Arts Council England, we have built a secure platform for the best writers from the region to reach a new audience of English-speaking readers across the globe.

With a focus on cutting-edge fiction and unique non-fiction titles in high-quality English translation, we continue to bring you the best in contemporary European literature.

''I hope this small and adventurous publisher brings out more.''                                                                                Nick Lezard, The Guardian
