The DISQUIET imprint of Dzanc Books will publish contemporary works from around the world in English translation. The imprint comes out of the annual DISQUIET International Literary Program in Lisbon, Portugal. Its first title was the novel The True Actor by Jacinto Lucas Pires, published in September 2013 in a translation by Jaime Braz and Dean Ellis. All titles in the DISQUIET imprint will include introductions by leading figures contextualizing the authors and their stories for North American audiences.
