Publishers are fooling around with my intentions to acquire less. I should have renamed this post April 2022 Great Anticipations, because all six titles are released this month.

Left column: Novels by long-standing favourites.

Middle column: Second helpings from authors showing the multi-ethnicities of contemporary Germany. Özdogan has Turkish parents, Jarawan is German-Lebanese.

Right Column: A Chilean writer newly translated into English and a diary by the translator about the challenges of translating the novel.
