    Vagabond Voices

    Founded in 2008 and based in Glasgow, Vagabond Voices is an independent publisher that is both Scottish and fervently European in its aims. Vagabond is committed to introducing new titles from Scottish authors and translating fiction from other languages. Our list reflects our aims to promote literary ambition and innovative writers who challenge readers.

    Vagabond Voices does specialise on particular literatures, with a strong Baltic emphasis with books from Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Germany. It has published several books translated from Italian. Our translated novels include a number of European classics, such as Corrado Alvaro’s Fear in the World (an anti-Soviet dystopia published ten years before Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four), Antanas Škėma’s White Shroud (Lithuania’s greatest modernist novel), and various works by A.H. Tammsaare, who is considered to be Estonia’s greatest writer ever (we are currently working our way through his monumental pentalogy, Truth and Justice, at the rate of one large volume a year). Of contemporary works, we draw attention to Lars Sund’s A Happy Little Island and Ričardas Gavelis’s Memoirs of a Life Cut Short.

    Vagabond Voices is a particularly proud of three masterpieces originally written in English: Stewart Ennis’s Blessed Assurance, Peter Arnott’s Moon Country and Chris Dolan’s Redlegs. Vagabond Voices also publishes poetry and political pamphlets, as well as the odd book of plays and collections of essays and other writings.
