Deutsches Haus at NYU presents a reading by the Austrian writer Maja Haderlap from her recent novel Angel of Oblivion, followed by a conversation with translator Tess Lewis.
"In this searingly lyrical work, a young child bears witness to her family's past... An arresting evocation of memory, community, and suffering." Kirkus Reviews
"Maja Haderlap has written a story of great power... A grandmother like no other, a father, poor and bitter, like no other, the presence of the dead as never before, a child unlike any before her." Peter Handke
