Weekends on the Island. An Evening with Anna Weidenholzer and Tess Lewis

  • Deutsches Haus NYU 42 Washington Mews New York, NY 10003 (map)

A reading by the author and current writer-in-residence at Deutsches Haus at NYU Anna Weidenholzer from her recent fiction followed by a conversation with the acclaimed translator Tess Lewis

‘Anna Weidenholzer has an acute feel for the absurdities of the world and the expectations placed on us, and for people who struggle their whole lives yet are seldom rewarded. She does not write with an overbearing ruthlessness, but with a rare degree empathy and delicacy. That’s precisely why her writing gets under your skin.’ Peter Henisch
