Charles' Picks

Charles moved to Asheville from Paris in 2019, but also grew up in Asheville. Both foreign and native, Charles is an enigma, but an enigma who likes to read.

Many of his favorites are books in translation, particularly fiction from South America, Central and Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, Italy and Spain. He has an MA in German Studies from the Sorbonne, and an MPhil in Comparative Literature from the Sorbonne Nouvelle. He has worked in various parts of the publishing world, mainly in France and Britain, and now sells you books. When not selling books, he hosts our monthly French-language book club (on hiatus during the time of virus) and is a translator from French, German and Spanish.
