Book no. 8 read in Polish of 2018 is translation of Widow by Fiona Barton. It was a pleasant and quick read, however not remarkable. One of those you enjoy while reading, but are able to move on to next read straight away. Still will read hers next novel when I'll need a mental break.

Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto at the book store.
I read the whole book right in the aisle where I found it. (Of course, there was a seat.) A translated Japanese work, I opened it to get a feel so that I could buy it to enjoy with my midday tea break. Before I knew it the characters, all young adults, had pulled me in and I was hooked. The second story was much shorter than the first but both were super intense without being melodramatic. Young love and loss, dealt with so simply and gently.
I bought a few other books to compensate for my reading the whole thing in store, though this particular bookstore encourages readers.

One of my biggest regrets in life continue to be that I cannot read or write my mother tongue( #Malayalam), so I’m doing the next best thing - picking up translated classics ❤️ .

Can you read and write in your native tongue ? :) .

Hoping to read The Shadow of the Wind by @zafonoficial very soon. I need to expand my horizons into other cultures, and I’ve learned Spanish since kindergarten, so I figured starting with Spanish novels translated into English was a good place to start. A year without Spanish has been rough on my retention of the language, but I plan on getting back into Espanol in college. La lengua es necessario que para mi carerra y quiero vistar Espana con un programa de universidad.

“Looking back on it now, I’d say one’s thirties are a cruel age. At this point, I think of them as a time I whiled away unaware of the tide that can suddenly pull you out, beyond the shallows, into the sea of hardship, and even death.”
#TheGuestCat by #TakashiHiraide
I spend so much time researching books and listening to podcasts about books that I have no idea where I heard about this little gem, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Milo, on the other hand, did not enjoy me stealing his mouse for my shot...

This book was my 2017 love and the hindi translation is beautiful too! Still would recommend the English translation more , because it's more poetic,but this is beautifully translated too and the shayari is easier to read in devnagri rather than nastaliq. The feelings of a few stories is more accurately conveyed in this (hindi being the language of the setting it wishes to show). Maybe 5 ,6 years down the line I'll learn some bengali,but now I'll make do with translations of favourite works. As far as the story goes , it's as superbly amazing as I've been saying it is. It meanders and flows and comes back and i love the beautiful writing style. Would recommend a thousand times. #bookdragon #wordshavepower #rabisankarbal #dozakhnama #manto #ghalib #bengali #bengaliliterature #bangali #novels #translation #translatedworks #novels #fiction #shayeri

There's more to Brazil than football. It has a rich literary culture that unfortunately is not well-known to English readers. Two of the important authors in the Brazilian literary canon are Lispector and Cardoso.
🇧🇷
Near to the Wild Heart was Lispector's award-winning debut novel that was first published in 1943 and translated to English in 1990 and recently in 2012, this edition.
🇧🇷
Chronicle of the Murdered House, Cardoso's masterpiece was first published in 1959 and translated to English only in 2017.
🇧🇷
According to Lispector's biographer, Cardoso was Lispector's first love, but a romantic relationship was doomed because Cardoso was gay.
🇧🇷

I was actually expecting and hoping for something a bit scarier when I read the blurb for this book, but I ended up enjoying all of the stories and a few were quite memorable. .

Today’s plan: finish these two books- Whistle in the Dark by @echealey and Death in Spring by Mercè Rodoreda.
I also need to finish organising all of my books, an incredibly daunting task as I need to be *extra* tough on myself 😭

Restless Waters of the Ichhamati revolves around life in the Mollahati Indigo Plantation -- one of the numerous indigo factories working under the Company rule. ×
×
Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay didn't wish to write an ethnographic treatise, but there is enough in the novel about the coercion that went into indigo cultivation. The intricate nexus between English manager and the brahmin dewan, the peasant subjects, Musalman and Hindu, including episodes from the Indigo Revolt of 1859-1862. ×
×
Restless Waters of the Ichhamati is the last novel to be published in the author's lifetime. .

QoTD: Have you read any of UR Anantha Murthy's works? If yes, was it Samsara or another one? Do tell. UR Anantha Murthy was a recipient of the Jnanpith Award, was awarded the Padma Bhushan as well and is considered a tour de force vis a vis Kannada literature.
.
.
My head is still reeling after reading U. R. Anantha Murthy’s Bhava, translated from the original Kannada by American poet, essayist and translator Judith Kroll, with the author. At 183 pages that includes an Afterword by Judith Kroll that has a critical commentary on Bhava where she links certain themes with the author’s other work Samsara and a ‘Notes’ section that is a little more than a glossary of terms and phrases used in the book, it is quite a literary work that makes you think and rethink issues around life, one’s existence and the fluid path between doubt and acceptance. Full review up on my blog (check bio).
.
.
Bhava follows two protagonists who may or may not be father and son. There is a circle of doubt that is similiar in their lives but Bhava is more than tbe characters or the story per se. For me, the title Bhava reflects the path from doubts of the self, the questions that we as individuals have to one of acceptance and surrender, reconcilement and then holding peace with what we finally can come near to as answers. I would recommend this book for serious literature readers and those willing to try the beauty and depths of Indian literature. .

As avid readers, do you collect your favourite books in other languages? Quite exciting to get a copy of #Illuminae in Bahasa Indonesian.. 565 pages long and significantly smaller than the Australian version!! @misterkristoff @amiekaufmanauthor 🧡 #bookstagram #bookish #books #reader #translatedworks #language #collectable

Green lemon loaf is a very good reason why I shouldn't be left alone with food coloring. 😂 📗
Thanks again @quercus_usa for my copies of "The Father" and "The Sons" by Anton Svensson. I'm definitely slotting them both into my #tbr list for the month, but I've been such a mood reader lately that I may be too ambitious saying they'll get read this month. But I'm gonna try, which I suppose is the point. 😁😅

QoTD: Do you agree with the term 'Indian Regional literature' when it comes to Indian authors who do not write in English? I am a wee bit uncomfortable with this categorization as I feel that 'Indian writing/literature' would do it as well. Having got that iff my chest, I am going to take part in reading translated Indian literature that @ekcupcoffee and @sant.reads are starting for April.

Featured in this photo is an English translation of Urdu writing. The author of this book was born in Bahawalpur which was part of the British India empire and which later opted to go with Pakistan after Partition. So this won't be counted as translated Indian literature but this is the only translated book I have with me during my holiday.
