And Other Stories has set a reading group up as well to discuss untranslated authors – but they’d like to have extracts in English where possible, to open it to people with little or no Spanish too.

The summer 2010 titles (recommended by a number of writers and translators) are by Argentinian and Spanish writers:
  • Felix Bruzzone
  • Juan Francisco Ferré
  • Iosi Havilio
  • Pola Oloixarac
  • Sergio Olguin
And Other Stories is pulling information and extracts in English on the authors where possible.

Here’s where more information on the authors is / will go:

And here’s the link to the Spanish-language reading group.
