An Anthology of Modern Basque Prose
Cover of 'likantropo' by xabier montoia (susa publishing house)1

Transcript takes great pleasure in presenting an anthology of contemporary Basque prose in this issue. The writers featured here complement their compatriot poets, a selection of whom we featured in Transcript 5. Click now on the names of our featured Basque writers in the left-hand column to discover their work.

The first four names, Aingeru Epaltza, Angel Lertxundi, Ramon Saizarbitoria and Arantxa Urretabizkaia, are those of writers whose preferred genre is the novel.

On the other hand, Bernardo Atxaga, Mariasun Landa, Joseba Sarrionandia, Iban Zaldua, Lourdes Oñederra, Harkaitz Cano, Pello Lizarralde, Xabier Montoia and Inazio Mujika Iraola are exponents of prose who tend to gravitate towards the short story.
