And Other Stories, 2018. “The Unmapped Country,” which is the title story from this just-released collection of writings by Ann Quin (1936-1973), might well serve as the password to all of Quin’s work.

Jenny Erpenbeck. Go, Went, Gone. New Directions, 2017. Translated from the German by Susan Bernofsky.

Still, there is a certain frisson […]

In Three, her second novel, published in 1966, […]

But first, about the title. It comes from a soft […]
