In the beginning was the Silver Pig– lit.COLOGNE’s debut prize celebrates 10 years, with Akiz, Amanda Lasker-Berlin and Benjamin Quaderer


Ten years of the Silver Pig award (Silberschwein) and ten years of great literature. Each year we present to you the three most striking debuts of the spring. The winner gets to take home a splendid swine (pasture-raised, of course) filled with €2,222. Monika Schärer introduces us to three incredibly talented writers: In Der Hund [“The Dog”], Akiz tells the brutal and sensuous story of an exceptional cook who rises from bitter poverty and, against all odds, makes it to the upper echelons of the food world. With lyrical precision, Amanda Lasker-Berlin immerses us into Elijahs Lied [“Elijah’s Song”]. Three sisters searching for harmony and solidarity are in danger of losing each other. Forever the Alps is a portrait of the swindler Johan Kaiser, who reflects the society he has defrauded. In this daringly clever and funny book, Benjamin Quaderer writes about the power of language and the power of money. Who will take home the prize? That’s up to you, dear audience!
