New editions in translation 2022

New editions in translation 2022

In 2021, 57 books by authors represented by our agency were published in translation. In early 2022, 120 books in translation are in preparation.


No one will be surprised to learn that the current pacemaker in the ‘competition’ for most forthcoming published titles in translation is Alena Mornštajnová, with 19 titles. She is followed by Petra Soukupová on 10, Jiří Kratochvil, Irena Dousková and Michal Ajvaz on 7, and Viktorie Hanišová, Pavel Čech, Petra Dvořáková, Jiří Hájíček and Jakuba Katalpa on 6.

To stay with the theme of competition, the imminent publication of Bílá Voda / Bílá Voda by Kateřina Tučková may lead to a shuffling of the cards in the coming future. As for our tip for this year’s dark horse, how about Sources of the Moldau / Prameny Vltavy by Petra Klabouchová?

Below is a list of books already published in 2022 together with those whose publication is imminent. This list is updated immediately on receipt of information from the publishers involved.
