lit.COLOGNE Old Hands/New Voices: Nadja Küchenmeister and Lutz Seiler


Streaming from Berlin

Lutz Seiler is a poet, essayist and novelist. He received the 2014 German Book Prize for his debut novel, “Kruso”, which was translated into 25 languages, spawned several theatre adaptations and was filmed by UFA. His latest novel, Star 111, won the 2020 Leipzig Book Fair Prize. In it, he creates a panorama of the first years after German reunification in East and West that includes a road trip spanning halfway across the globe and nevertheless remains a Berlin novel. “Lutz Seiler reaches the level of a Thomas Pynchon here. [...] This is atmospherically rich, true world literature” (Denis Scheck).
Born in Berlin in 1981, Nadja Küchenmeister writes audio plays, features and reviews for radio. But most of all, she is a prize-winning poet. Her most recent volume of poetry, In the Glass Mountain, is already her third. Host: Marion Brasch
