Festival Neue Literatur is pleased to present Volume 9 of its annual reader! Each year, Festival Neue Literatur commissions abbreviated English translations of the featured German-language writers. Overwhelmingly, the excerpts contained in festival readers are often the first time featured works have been translated into English.  

Over the years, we have worked with the world’s most established and exciting literary translators to bring nearly forty works to new readers. This year’s Volume 8 features an introduction by Festival Curator Peter Blackstock. We hope you enjoy it.
