simply represents all of the titles that the nine BTB panelists (Monica Carter, Scott Esposito, Susan Harris, Annie Janusch, Brandon Kennedy, Bill Marx, Michael Orthofer, Chad W. Post, and Jeff Waxman) have recommended to each other to take a look at. It’s a sort of list of “books in the running,” or more accurately, “translations that some of us have liked.”
It’s a good list. Personally, I can vouch for Little Fingers by Filip Florian, Vilnius Poker by Ricardas Gavelis, Death in Spring by Merce Rodoreda, and Collector of Worlds by Iliya Trayanov. To that list, I’d add Yoko Ogawa’s The Housekeeper and the Professor.
