5 And Other Stories books have made it onto ‘The 100 Best Books by Women Writers in Translation‘ list, sitting with pride alongside some wonderful writers and translators (see the full list here).

People in the Room by Norah Lange (trans. Charlotte Whittle)

The Remainder by Alia Trabucco Zerán (trans. Sophie Hughes)

Sweet Days of Discipline by Fleur Jaeggy (trans. Tim Parks)

 Love by Hanne Ørstavik (Archipelago edition)

Inspired by Catherine Taylor’s excellent review of Boyd Tonkin’s 100 Best Novels in Translation and other conversations regarding bias and exclusion, Meytal Radzinski, put together a canon of sorts, in an attempt to share books that are both representative and accessible. The titles were chosen by readers, from all around the world, who sent in their nominations for translated books, specifically those written by women, trans, or nonbinary authors. Obviously, this cannot be a wholly exhaustive list, but it is a very good start!
