Ror Wolf Review

Chad Post over at Three Percent has just posted my review of Two or Three Years Later, a wild short story collection by German author Ror Wolf. He links to a sample translation by Anthea Bell here.

In other German book news, Sasa Stanisic has just been awarded the Adelbert von Chamisso Prize a.k.a 15,000 euros (found via Liisas Litblog). This prize is awarded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung and honors authors writing in German whose native language is not German. Stanisic's novel, How the Soldier Repairs the Gramophone, is coming out this spring with Grove Atlantic, and translated by none other than Anthea Bell. Publishers Weekly featured the book in a Januray article, New Fiction New Worlds. Stanisic will participate in this year's PEN World Voices Festival.
