Absinthe 21: Precarious Europe

Precarious Europe : Writing in Uncertain Times makes no attempt at offering an exhaustive survey of the hypothetical genre of the ‘literature of the crisis’—or even at claiming that such a homogeneous category does, in fact, truly exist. For their first issue, the new editors of Absinthe wanted to bring together a number of contemporary voices, all speaking to and from this current stage of uncertainty, either in Europe’s ‘center’ or at its ‘margins’. Together, these singular perspectives compose the fragmentary and often somber picture of a continent in turmoil.
