Since 2010, this anthology has been an essential resource for readers, critics, and publishers interested in contemporary European literature. In this, the seventh installment of the series, Best European Fiction 2016 continues its commitment to uncovering the best prose writing happening on the continent--from Azerbaijan to Denmark, from Portugal to the Ukraine--featuring work by established authors such as Josef Winkler, Christian Gailly, and Joao de Melo, as well as up-and-coming writers like Krisztina Toth, Justyna Bargielska, Veronika Simoniti, and Bessora

The volume is also a forum for the best translators working today, featuring new translations by Lawrence Venuti, Vera Rich, Amaia Gabantxo, Adrian Nathan West, and many more. Also featuring a provocative prefatory essay written by John Fosse, Best European Fiction 2016 is another essential report on the state of global literature in the twenty-first century.
