I am so very delighted that Jill Schoolman, the charismatic publisher of Archipelago Books who was named a 2014 “Brooklyn Influencer” by NY Observer, will publish Christos Ikonomou’s, Something Will Happen You’ll See, in English. She is one of the most inspirational people I have ever met in publishing; one of the very few who consistently risk and win by championing international authors in the English speaking market. We need more people like her in the (publishing) world.

Tο τελευταίο κείμενο της Αμάντας Μιχαλοπούλου από τη Νέα Υόρκη το οποίο κλείνει τον κύκλο κειμένων από την περιοδία της στην Αμερική:
“Καθώς πλησιάζει το τέλος αυτού του ταξιδιού καταλαβαίνω καλύτερα την περίφημη ρήση του Μιγκέλ ντε Ουναμούνο: «Ο φασισμός θεραπεύεται με το διάβασμα και ο ρατσισμός με το ταξίδι».”
Amanda Michalopoulou’s, Why I Killed My Best Friend, on Flavorwire’s 10 Must-Read Books for May:
“For a book that’s under 300 pages, Amanda Michalopoulou’s novel packs a whole lot of the joys, pitfalls, and politics of friendship, as well as Greece and all its problems, into one.”

Amanda Michalopoulou’s, Why I Killed My Best Friend, reviewed in Kirkus:
“Another fine entry in the University of Rochester’s Open Letter series of literary translations, this cerebral novel by prizewinning novelist Michalopoulou (I’d Like, 2008, etc.) recounts a friendship of the kind that marks us for life.”

Amanda Michalopoulou’s, “Why I Killed My Best Friend,” (Open Letter, 2014) reviewed by Jennifer Kurdyla in NY arts magazine, Music and Literature:
“Much like the exquisitely rendered friendship of Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan trilogy, set during a similar time period in Italy, here is a portrait of what it means to use and be used by the people you love most, to see the best and worst of yourself in a face not your own. And it’s a sign of incredible maturity and wisdom for this fine, prolific, and audacious young writer to fearlessly embrace the challenge of brining that uncomfortable internal conflict to the page.”
Jennifer Kurdyla is an editor at Alfred A. Knopf. She lives in New York City.
