Manuel Rivas’ poetry in English
Small Stations Press has just brought out an anthology of eighty poems by Manuel Rivas, From Unknown to Unknown, selected and translated into English by Jonathan Dunne (who translates his prose for Harvill Secker in London and Overlook Press in New York).
The anthology has an introduction by John Burnside, the talented and prolific Scottish writer, which is available to read on the publisher’s website.
Small Stations Press, which publishes in both English and Bulgarian, plans a Bulgarian edition of Rivas’ best-selling novel The Carpenter’s Pencil for autumn 2009.
