Blogging for more than five years, searching the planet for the best in fiction, essays and poetry. Following the Man Booker International Prize, have been a Shadow Jury member every year since 2014, and the Best Translated Book Award.

Review Policy – I review primarily translated fiction, Australian poetry and the occasional “lost” Classic (this is a rarity). Only books that fit that niche are considered for review.
