Under the Surface

Good-Bye to all That: Partings is the theme for this month’s issue of Words Without Borders, a fitting way to say farewell to a calendar year by one of my favorite online lit mags.

Among the selections is a short piece, Under the Surface, by Slovenian writer Mojca Kumerdej, a gripping tale of one woman’s sacrifice to save her marriage. The story is from Kumerdej’s 2003 collection of short stories, Fragma, which WWB describes as “literary interrogations of sexuality and violence”. It’s unlike any family story I’ve ever read.

More about the book here, in Slovenian.
