Judith Schalansky

The celebrated German Bestselling author talks with philosopher Barbara Bleisch about her new highly acclaimed book An Inventory of Certain Losses.

 

Judith Schalansky is one of the most exciting voices in contemporary German literature. Her work, including the internationally successful bestseller Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Never Set Foot On and Never Will, has been translated into more than 20 languages and has received many awards. At the festival she will present her most recent masterpiece An Inventory of Certain Losses, which was awarded the prestigious Wilhelm Raabe Prize. In this new book, Judith Schalansky dedicates herself to that which the lost leaves behind: dying echoes and disappearing steps, whispers and legends, apostrophes and phantom pains.
