Críticas:

The Complete Review Guide to Contemporary World Fiction offers a bird's-eye view of titles and authors from everywhere-a book overfull with reminders of why we love to read international fiction. Keep it close by. -- Robert Con Davis-Udiano, executive director, World Literature Today M. A. Orthofer has done more to bring literature in translation to America than perhaps any other individual. The Complete Review Guide to Contemporary World Fiction will introduce more new worlds to you than any other book on the market. -- Tyler Cowen, George Mason University We live in an age of paradoxes: The global internet allows us to communicate with each other on a level unknown to mankind a few decades before. On the other hand there are more than 6000 different languages on this planet - 6000 barriers to mutual understanding. Although English has become the lingua franca in science, we know very little about the cultural self-interpretation of these numerous language-groups. One of the traditional and proven vessels of cultural self-identification is fictional literature. M.A. Orthofer's The Complete Review Guide to Contemporary World Fiction opens a welcome window to the wide literary world for all readers of English, who depend on the efforts of translators. His guide will encourage its readers to venture abroad while reading - staying at home or in a library. -- Michael Naumann, Director of the Barenboim-Said Academy in Berlin, former commissioner of culture of Germany, and founder of Metropolitan Books in New York. A relaxed, riverine guide through the main currents of international writing, with sections for more than a hundred countries on six continents. -- Karan Mahajan Page-Turner blog, The New Yorker Highly recommended to avid readers of fiction. -- Tyler Cowen Marginal Revolution The Complete Review Guide to Contemporary World Fiction is that very rare thing: an extraordinarily detailed book where the information is easily accessed and understood. It is a splendid reference, a dependable guide, and a rich map of the world through its books. -- Jaya Bhattacharji Rose Scroll.in Highly recommended. CHOICE An amazingly comprehensive and informative work. Marginal Revolution The most complete resource for readers of a transnational bent, interested in further expanding their horizons. -- Michael LaPointe Times Literary Supplement The Complete Review Guide to Contemporary World Fiction, a distillation of Orthofer's prodigious website, provides precis introductions to an astounding range of foreign and translated literature... As a reference to writers rarely discussed in the United States, Orthofer's guide is invaluable, and just as importantly, it capably defends the "genre" of world literature. -- Sam Sacks Open Letters Monthly A wide-ranging reference work exploring the world's literary wonders. Tony's Reading List
