Dzanc Books Puts Out Trash


Ulf Peter Hallberg, a Swedish writer based in Berlin, is the author of many books. Hallberg is also a prolific translator from German, French and English into Swedish, including Shakespeare, Molière, Walter Benjamin and Brecht. European Trash. Fourteen Ways to Remember a Father is his first book to be published in English, translated by Erland Anderson and Ingrid Cassady. European Trash blends memoir, essay and fiction in an evocative journey through his late father’s world of collecting the European “trash.” “Everything became immersed in his grand structure, the collection that was his life’s energy, and unusual defense against the world’s entropy.” European Trash is available from the publisher, Dzanc Books, and Amazon.
