The World Series!

The LA Review of Books on the World Series from Peter Owen and Istros

THE WORLD SERIES is the joint project of Peter Owen Publishers and Istros Books. Launched in the autumn of 2016, the aim is to bring out three works of contemporary fiction in translation from a given country or region in two seasons a year. The books are published in paperback, with series branding; they are released first in the United Kingdom and, six months later, in the United States. In the exchange below, Susan Curtis-Kojaković, who set up Istros Books in 2011 to promote and publish the literature of Southeast Europe and the Balkans, speaks to Simon Smith, managing editor of the Peter Owen World Series.
