Set in an unnamed place that appears to be under military rule, this novel comprises of various 'transcribed and/or translated' first-hand narratives of non-English speakers, reminiscent of accounts of incidents in Rwanda, Yugoslavia and even the Cultural Revolution in China. The fragmented, dream like episodes and the broken elegance of the language make "Translated Accounts" a powerful and disconcerting read.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Reminiscent of the great dramatic poets of 20th century literature . . . Harold Pinter and Samuel Beckett'

* Los Angeles Times Book Review *

'It is a singular achievement that Kelman succeeds in so unsettling us . . . Something of a masterpiece'

* The Independent *

'Reminds us that fiction can be more than parochial, more than glamorous literary noise, more than journalism. Kelman offers us a challenge. We should accept it'

* The Sunday Times *

'One of the most enjoyable writers around'

* The Guardian *
