Festival Neue Literatur is pleased to present Volume 11 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 11 features an introduction by our festival curators Alta L. Price and Tess Lewis. We hope you enjoy it.
