The current Estonian Literary Magazine is no 35 and comes out for the Frankfurt Book Fair. In a longer article, Reet Klettenberg examines the life and work of the prominent Hungarian linguist and literary translator Gábor Bereczki who died in April this year. The magazine offers longish articles about two more remarkable men in Estonian literature: Peeter Helme writes about Hellar Grabbi and Jaanus Vaiksoo about Harri Jõgisalu, who celebrated his 90th birthday in August.

Andra Teede represents the younger generation. She is interviewed by Jayde Will who also has raised a topical subject of e-books and e-publishing, which he discusses with Madli Puhvel and Eeva Park.

Sirje Kiin analyses Livia Viitol’s biography of Eduard Vilde. Piret Viires introduces the winners of various 2011 literary awards. As always, ELM presents short overviews of recently published Estonian books.
