Best European Fiction

The Best European Fiction 2010 is a forward-looking anthology edited by Aleksander Hemon. With a preface by Zadie Smith, and over 300 pages, including previously unpublished works by Alisdair Gray, Julian Rios, Victor Pelevin, and George Konrad, this is a hefty tome of fiction to sink your teeth into.

The Best European presents thirty-five stories from thirty countries in Europe, with writers from countries as culturally and geographically disparate as Iceland, Lichtenstein, Albania, and England.

From Hemon's introduction:
"The stories you will find in this volume inescapably question and probe and sabotage various national myths... unabashedly questioning the propriety of the old forms in the new set of historical and political circumstances."
