The prize-winners of the International Literature Award - Haus der Kulturen der Welt 2009, the Peruvian writer Daniel Alarcón and Friederike Meltendorf, who translated the novel from American English, are the first winners of the prize awarded by the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, and Stiftung Elementarteilchen. On November 17th they are guests of a reading at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, which is part of WortWelten. In his debut novel, "Lost City Radio" (Wagenbach 2008) Daniel Alarcón (b. 1977 in Peru), has created a work that reads like a parable about oppressive totalitarian regimes and the worldwide web of power and violence. He writes in the language of his new homeland USA, and takes an incisive look at the history of his own country. An ingenious literary work about the disappeared and the struggle against forgetting. Alarcón and his German translator Friederike Meltendorf will read from the award-winning novel and engage in a discussion about the complex exchange between worlds and languages, and last but not least, about working with words in writing and translating contemporary world literature. Moderation: Susanne Stemmler
In English with simultaneous German translation
The event is part of WortWelten
Admission: 5 € / 3 €
