To kick off London Book Fair week, Tilted Axis Press are holding a party to celebrate their launch; Tilted Axis is a not-for-profit publishing company on a mission to shake up contemporary international literature, spotlighting translation and transgression. Since their successful Arts Council bid last year, they’ve been scouring the globe for the most excitingly original contemporary fiction – from Kolkata to Jakarta, Seoul to Bangkok – and are finally ready to unveil their line-up.
As well as introducing the press itself, publisher Deborah Smith – whose translations of South Korean author Han Kang have recently been celebrated at Free Word Centre – has arranged flash readings and performances from several Tilted Axis authors and translators: Sangeeta Bandyopadhyay, Khairani Barokka, Prabda Yoon and Mui Poopoksakul. There will also be a competition with prizes, exclusive discounts on Tilted Axis’ first titles, music, beer, and book chat. So come down, get to know the team and their authors, and help Tilted Axis launch with a bang!
