Monica Cantieni: The Encyclopaedia of Good Reasons.
The Encyclopaedia of Good Reasons
Donal McLaughlin, tr.
Set against the 1970 Swiss Referendum on immigration, The Encyclopaedia of Good Reasons follows a young immigrant girl as she acclimates to her new life with her adopted family. Brimming with fascinating and eccentric characters, comical situations, and an exceedingly original writing style, Cantieni's deeply poignant work artfully and empathetically explores being different and the problems of integration.
