About this product
- DescriptionDiversity is one of the defining characteristics of contemporary German-language literature, t just in terms of the variety of authors writing in German today, but also in relation to theme, form, technique and style. However, common themes emerge: the Nazi past, transnationalism, globalisation, migration, religion and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and identity. This book presents the vel in German since 1990 through a set of close readings both of international bestsellers (including Daniel Kehlmann's Measuring the World and W. G. Sebald's Austerlitz) and of less familiar, but important texts (such as Yade Kara's Selam Berlin). Each vel discussed in the volume has been chosen on account of its aesthetic quality, its impact and its representativeness; the authors featured, among them Nobel Prize winners Gunter Grass, Elfriede Jelinek and Herta Muller demonstrate the energy and quality of contemporary writing in German.
