Welcome to The Monthly Booking
Curated monthly reading lists focusing on translations, small presses, and books in German
Each month a new list of four books: one fiction, one non-fiction, one translation, one small-press publication. Read along, or simply be inspired by the reviews.
Reviews of the best German, Austrian and Swiss authors available in English translation, plus recommendations for new books in German yet to be translated but highly deserving of it.
Reviews of my favourite bookshops around the world, plus the occasional article on a small press, podcast, subscription service or new way to read.
The Monthly Booking was born of a desire to read more thoughtfully, expand my literary horizons, and focus on the kind of books that really matter to me.
