After a flood of English translations of Dutch-language literature in our last few issues, things are a little quieter this time round, but there are still several exciting titles, most notably an Amsterdam volume in Oxford University Press’s well-received literary travel series, with fascinating works from the seventeenth to twenty-first century, translated by Paul Vincent. Other particularly noteworthy titles are Ernest van der Kwast’s Mama Tandoori, published by Scribe, and The Consequences by Niña Weijers, published by DoppelHouse Press.
