Discover women in translation with this bundle of five works of translated fiction. The Virago Women in Translation bundle includes: 

Lost on Me by Veronica Raimo, translated by the author.

The 100,000 copy Italian bestseller loved by Katherine Heiny, Naoise Dolan and Monica Ali. Deceptively simple, its tenderness offset by moments of cool brutality, Lost on Me is a masterwork of human observation.

The Queens of Sarmiento Park by Camila Sosa Villada, translated by Kit Maude.

The Argentine literary sensation that has taken the Spanish-speaking world by storm: a dark, surreal and beautiful novel about violence, exclusion and love.

Transit by  Anna Seghers, translated by Margot Bettauer Dembo.

An existential, political, literary thriller first published in 1944, Transit explores the plight of the refugee with extraordinary compassion and insight.

The Book of Mother by Violaine Huisman, translated by Leslie Camhi.  

With spectacular ferocity of language, a streak of dark humor and stunning emotional bravery, The Book of Mother is an exquisitely wrought story of a mother’s dizzying heights and devastating lows, and a daughter who must hold her memory close in order to let go.

Crimson by Niviaq Korneliussen , translated by the author. 

Crimson weaves through restlessness, depression, love and queer experiences to tell the story of Greenlanders through a unique and challenging form. The original text was written and published in the Greenlandic language.
