The Countdown Begins - The German Book Prize | Arts.21

8 years ago117 views

Judging by the 2010 German Book Prize shortlist, German literature is becoming increasingly international.Three of the six nominees were not born in German-speaking countries, and their novels reflect their respective Czech, Hungarian and Israeli roots. The jury has welcomed German literature's new-found cultural diversity, with personal accounts of uprooting and the search for home dominating this year's shortlist. On October 4, just ahead of the start of the Frankfurt Book Fair, the winner will be announced - and not only will they take home the 25,000 euro prize money, they'll all see a huge boost in sales of their novel. The Nominees: Melinda Nadj Abonji: «Tauben fliegen auf» Jan Faktor: «Georgs Sorgen um die Vergangenheit oder Im Reich des heiligen Hodensack-Bimbams von Prag» Thomas Lehr: «September» Doron Rabinovici: «Andernorts» Peter Wawerzinek: «Rabenliebe» Judith Zander: «Dinge, die wir heute sagten»
