Overview

Delving deep into the renaissance of international noir, and with new writing from César Aira, Primo Levi, and over 30 other celebrated authors, this 18th installment of the premier annual international literature anthology series strikes a dark, subversive chord. Co-edited by Guggenheim fellow and lauded writer Luc Sante, plus leading American poet and translator Rosanna Warren, Counterfeits delivers essential authors from nearly 20 different languages.

Illuminating sinister corners of the globe, Counterfeits leads with a special section of innovative, international noir literature from Slovakia, Egypt, Chile, Russia, and elsewhere. It's also highlighted by translations of Mongolian, Catalan, and Bulgarian poetry, as well as fiction from Russian absurdist Sigizmund Krhizhanovsky and mordant Frenchman Albert Cossery, who counted Henry Miller as a fan.

"Two Lines suggests that languages can be made to run parallel to each other instead of existing in separate worlds." -Billy Collins, Former U.S. Poet Laureate
