The German Book Prize Shortlist

Hello Gentle Reader

Autumn is a season of awards – literary awards that is. The Booker Prize, The German Book Prize, The Peace Prize of the German Book Trade, and of course the Nobel Prize for Literature, which will announced early to mid-October; depending on when a consensus has been reached. Still here is the shortlist for the German Book Prize; I will leave a link to the website in which I have got this information, and you can read the list, and the blurbs about the books there.

Thomas Hettche, “Pfaueninsel,”
Angelika Kl├╝ssendorf, “April,”
Gertrud Leutenegger, “Panischer Fr├╝hling,”
Thomas Melle, “3000 Euro,”
Lutz Seiler, “Kruso,”
Heinrich Steinfest, “Der Allesforscher,”

There they are Gentle Reader, The German Book Prize shortlist, six authors, with six different viewpoints, tackling diverse subjects and themes.
