1. Tonight at 192 Books, Damion Searls talks Nescio


    For those in the NYC area, come out to hear translator Damion Searls talk about the Dutch author Nescio’s life and work at 192 Books tonight at 7 pm (info here). Nescio only wrote a few novella’s early in his life in 1910s, and then much later during the Nazi occupation of Holland with his story ‘Insula Dei.’ Amsterdam Stories is the first collection and translation of Nescio’s work into English. Think of a Dutch combination of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Salinger, and Kafka and you’re pretty close.
