Welcome
This is the HTML version of the literary websiteThe Ledge. The Flash version of the site - which you can reach via www.the-ledge.com - is much more fun. For one thing, you can hear authors reading from their work... Have a look. And a listen.

The Ledge is an independent platform for literature. At the heart of the site is a series of interviews with authors, translators and critics, just ot get you in the mood. There is also a built-in, ever-expanding reading guide and a listing of international literary events.

We're working hard to fill the database. In the coming months we hope to provide detailed descriptions for as many books as possible, as well as 'biographies' for each of our authors. (Note: book titles in brackets [ ]'s are, as yet, unavailable in English translation.)
LINKS: we love being linked, but please link to the startpage, www.the-ledge.com. Thanks!

Stay up-to-date
