Books Available For Review

Please get in touch if you are interested in reviewing one of these books or something not listed. Titles below are only those we’ve been directly offered a review copy of, so if there’s a recent book of literary fiction you’d like to propose reviewing (preferably from small/independent presses and especially in translation), we encourage you to inquire. We are willing to request from publishers review copies of books not listed here, but prefer to do so for reviewers we have previously worked with or can point us to examples of their reviews published elsewhere. Please don’t ask to review a book by a writer with whom you have a significant personal or professional relationship.
