Fiction Reading Group – Women in Translation

For the inaugural session of our reading group that celebrates female voices from around the world we’ll be looking at Bret Easton Ellis and the Other Dogs by Swedish author Lina Wolff. Set in the golden heat of Barcelona and the surrounding countryside, the novel subtly inverts the normal gendered roles of fiction, and masterfully builds a world for its diverse set of characters to inhabit. The plot is winding, multi-tonal and deep.

Simultaneously epic and intimate, I have never read anything like it – I’m looking forward to hearing what you think!
