Past Book Club Titles
How it Works
Carefully curated by our award-winning team based in six continents, the Asymptote Book Club is a new way to discover world literature. Try our recurring three-month subscription at USD50/£38/€57 for three months. Or you can sign up to our recurring one-year subscription at USD180/£140/€211 a year!
Your subscription includes shipping, a print copy of that month’s title, access to our online discussion spaces, and invitations to any in-person Book Club events being held. If you sign up for three months, we’ll send you a welcome gift of an Asymptote ebook, with exclusive content not featured anywhere else. If you choose a yearly recurring subscription, you’ll receive three Asymptote ebooks, and an AsympTOTE!
The Book Club is all about discovery. Each month’s title will arrive hot off the presses of the very best independent publishers in Canada, the US, and the UK.
We’ve worked hard to select fiction which will inspire and challenge, and we’re committed to featuring a wide variety of translators and source texts. You’ll discover exciting new works by emerging voices and beloved authors, while reading from all over the globe.
Throughout the month we will offer exclusive features tied to the book club, including author or translator interviews, online discussion spaces, in-person meetups and more. Already part of a school, book club, charitable organization or any other group of likeminded readers?
Join the Asymptote Book Club together and broaden your horizons. We guarantee this will be a reading experience like no other. We spark the conversation. Where it goes is up to you!
Partnering with the very best independent publishers like New Directions, Archipelago, and & Other Stories, we will take great pains to curate our selection to reflect the diversity of world literature today. All the picks will be brand-new titles translated into English. We pick what we believe will be future award-winners and cult classics, the kind of books which start conversations and keep you thinking long after the last page.
