Reading your way through the World Cup - Belgium

Here at Prestwick House, we are excited as another USA World Cup game is upon us. Today, the USMNT will be facing Belgium in what is sure to be a battle to advance to the quarterfinals. Although the men showed promise during their games against Ghana and Portugal, they slowed their defenses against Germany. Here's to hoping they enjoy soccer more than waffles!

You can continue reading while enjoying the game by checking out Danny Scott’s “A Booklover’s Guide to World Cup 2014” and possibly picking up the great selection from Belgium!

Marcel by Erwin Mortier, Pushkin Press It was uncertain, until recently, whether multi-lingual Belgium was going to continue as one country. Considered by many to be the dark horses of this year's World Cup, Belgians might soon find themselves firmly on the map. Once there they may start shouting more about their literature and, handily, Erwin Mortier's novels have recently been translated by Pushkin Press. Seek out Marcel to journey into the mind of the eponymous main character unravelling his family's complicated past in their Flemish village.
