On the heels of Michael Orthofer’s glowing review of Leg Over Leg last November, The White Review is featuring an excerpt of the forthcoming third volume in its latest, translation-themed issue. You can see it online here, prefaced by an introduction from its editor-translator, Humphrey Davies. Take a sneak peek at “A Banquet and Various Kinds of Hot Sauce” and “That Stinging Sensation You Feel When You Get Hot Sauce up Your Nose” now!

And if that’s not enough hot sauce for you, we’d like to point out that the book got a nice mention in the New York Times Book Review this weekend, where a review of a new translation of Ahmet Hamdi Tanpinar’s novel The Time Regulation Institute cites our publication of Leg Over Leg as evidence that “we’re having a particularly good season for literary discoveries from the past.”
