Book Briefs: Apr., 2013


“Martin Ehl shows us how entertaining sophisticated, high-quality journalism can be,” said Jury Chairman Ambros Kindel when he announced the winner of the 2012 Writing for Central and Eastern Europe award. Ehl is among the top columnists on the issues and events shaping Central Europe and the Baltics. Middle Europa collects well-informed and well-written assessments of the historical, cultural and social characteristics of the region, which often remain elusive to Western correspondents. His columns from the Czech daily Hospodarske Noviny are well translated and lay bare the nexus of East and West.


Middle Europa: Collected Columns

by Martin Ehl

Transitions Online, Prague (2013),




After experiencing the Iraq War in 1991, Mark Ottoson and family moved to Salzburg and the foothills of the Austrian Alps, sparking his Corinthian trilogy for young adult readers, he explores the world through Prince Gregor’s eyes, as he tries to make the right decisions. An endearing story of insurmountable obstacles and the search for a moral compass.
