Ulrike Almut Sandig’s ‘Thick Of It’
Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Road, London EC1R 3GA
As a part of the 2016 European Literature Festival (ELF) series, six translators will go head-to-head, pitching their must-acquire European books to a live audience and a jury of top publishing experts: Max Porter (Granta/Portobello), Meike Ziervogel (Peirene Press) and Stefan Tobler (And Other Stories). This whirlwind tour of contemporary European writing will uncover brilliant books from Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Turkey and France which have not yet been translated into English. The full line-up of books and translators was announced at the London Book Fair on 13 April. Speakers taking part are Antoinette Fawcett, Paula Darwish, Karen Leeder, Emma Mandley, Sam Nagele and James Womack. We are delighted that Karen Leeder will be presenting Ulrike Almut Sandig's Thick Of It.
