    Four years ago, Dalkey Archive Press established THE BEST EUROPEAN FICTION, a groundbreaking annual anthology that presents Europe's most current intellectual migrations, ancient preoccupations, exposed nerves, hidden communities.

    Critics embraced it worldwide. One called it "vital, fascinating." Another said it was "impossibly ambitious." The Guardian wrote that it was "a sort of international show-and-tell of the soul."

    For 2013, the acclaimed Aleksandar Hemon has assembled what may be our most dynamic edition to date, with an introduction by John Banville and stunning fiction from more than thirty countries, from England's A.S. Byatt to Bosnia and Herzegovina's Semezdin Mehmedinović, Ireland's Mike McCormack to France's Marie Redonnet.

    There is no place we'd rather celebrate than Columbia University, the new cultural partner that has recently acquired our archives. Please join us, along with three of the volume's contributors to be named. The authors will read very briefly from their work, and then participate in an unrehearsed discussion moderated by John O'Brien, Dalkey's publisher and man about town. There will be wine and light snacks, as well as an exclusive opportunity to purchase the book before its publication.

    That's right: this will be the first glimpse anyone in the United States gets of this highly anticipated title.

    The event is from 5-8pm in the Butler Library at Columbia, Room 523. It is free and open to the public.
