Michael Henry Heim’s List of Suggested Readings in Twentieth-Century Central European Prose

Michael Henry Heim is a professor at UCLA and a very respected translator from a number of languages. Check the editions on our course list and you’ll see his name. Although this list does not include works from every country in Central Europe, it does point to cultural links that complicate the “East European” / “West European” dichotomy that became customary during the Cold War. The list could easily include writers from ethnic minorities in any of the listed countries, etc. I’ve added a few newer works to this list, since it seems a good place to put them —- my selections are tagged with (SF) after the titles.
