Our book of the week is Bolla by Pajtim Statovci translated by David Hackston. Set in Kosovo, this novel centres on Arsim, an Albanian man who falls in love with Milos, a Serbian man, just before the Kosovan war. It won the Finlandia Prize in its original Finnish. We echo the praise of Torrey Peters: "Devastating in the most beautiful ways ... you are in the hands of an absolute artist."
Coming up: our recommendations for Women in Translation Month.
