DoppelHouse Press has just released the first English translation of the highly lauded, bestselling Dutch author Niña Weijers, with her novel The Consequences, in a "lithe, sinuous" translation from Hester Velmans. This raw, ambivalent novel asks us to consider the relationship between art, life and commodification, in the character of Minnie Panis, a performance artist toying with an idea for a new project which quickly becomes more personal than she could have ever imagined. The book's conclusions, or lack thereof, will leave the reader unsettled. Read more of my thoughts at The Literary Review.
Publication announcements, bookish items of note and the occasional literary musing.
