Indiespensable Volume 11
Volume 11 of Indiespensable, Powell's subscription book club, was recently announced, and, for the very first time in Indiespensable history, the chosen book is a translation: Gerbrand Bakker's The Twin (originally written in Dutch and translated into English by David Colmer). Kudos to Powell's for supporting works in translation. J.M. Coetzee describes The Twin as "[a] novel of restrained tenderness and laconic humour." It's not too late to join the club.
