CANCELED - Author Esther Kinsky Presents Her New Novel "Grove"

G–009 | Grenelle Teaching and Mentoring Center | 147, rue de Grenelle, 75007 Paris
Tuesday, March 10, 2020 - 18:30


By invitation of the Center for Writers & Translators and the Goethe-Institut Paris, Esther Kinsky will read from and discuss her novel Grove, winner of the Leipzig Book Prize in 2018 and forthcoming from Fitzcarraldo Editions this spring. A "field novel" in three parts, Grove is a work of bereavement that takes place in several Italian settings. Its patiently alert sentences affirm Kinsky's reputation as one of the German language's finest stylists. Esther Kinsky grew up by the river Rhine and lived in London for twelve years. She is the author of three volumes of poetry and several novels, including River, whose English translation was acclaimed as "magnificent" (The New Yorker) and "a book to relish for its precise descriptions of landscape and weather, for its interest in the detritus of other people’s lives that we routinely overlook, and for its international reach as well as its localized intensities" (The Guardian). She has translated many notable English-language (John Clare, Henry David Thoreau, Lewis Grassic Gibbon) and Polish-language (Miron Białoszewski, Zygmunt Haupt, Ida Fink, Olga Tokarczuk) authors into German.
