Steve brings to my attention (and to the attention of the literary saloon) the pretty outrageous news that Gabriel Josipovici's latest novel Only Joking, written in English, is only to be available in German translation, as Nur ein Scherz (Zweitausendeins). This is rubbish! Better news is that The Singer on the Shore: Essays 1991-2004 is out from Carcanet in March (and a new novel Everything Passes is out in September). And, hopefully, in the early Spring, we'll be interviewing Gabriel here at RSB.

  1. The same thing happened with Joseph McElroy's Exponential, a collection of essays, written in English & mostly published like so, which was published in Italy a couple years ago. The US publishing industry's failing a lot of people . . .
