New online in September
After the veritable wave of new texts and translations that came online last summer, it is now a little quieter on the citybooks website. That said, Kakha Kakhiani’s photos from Turnhout have been recently uploaded for all to admire, and several translation have been added too. Apart from that, we are waiting on tenterhooks for new texts, new translations and new podcasts, of which the recordings are now well underway. Coming soon: Luc Devoldere and Cees Nooteboom on Venice, Peter Terrin and Lasha Bugadze on Turnhout and hordes of translations into English, French and Italian.
