This may be the very best way to help the Center and treat yourself: you can subscribe to a year of Two Lines Press for just $36! That includes our 4 2013 titles, plus a free 5th book.

As many of you probably know, Two Lines Press is the new translation-only publishing venture started by the Center. Our first two books are publishing right this minute--Hi, This Is Conchita by Santiago Roncagliolo (translated by Edith Grossman), and All My Friends by Marie NDiaye (translated by Jordan Stump). (If you're in the Bay Area, come celebrate with us on May 22.)

We'll have two more books coming in the fall: The Fata Morgana Books by Jonathan Littell (translated by Charlotte Mandell) and the 20th anniversary volume of TWO LINES.

Subscribing gets you all 4 books, plus a free fifth one from the TWO LINES archives. Full details are right here.

Subscribing is an awesome way to support all the Center's programs, as well as treating yourself to some great world literature year-round. On our 2013 list, we've got 2 Prix Goncourt winners, one Independent Foreign Fiction Prize winner, a Granta Best Young Spanish-Language Novelist, a International Booker Prize finalist . . . not a bad list for our first year (and wait till you see what we're publishing in 2014).
