A strange man is found hanging half dead on a jungle gym at a playground. Who is he? And how did he get there? In "Day In Day Out," Terézia Mora leaves her readers to piece together this mystery.
Mora is an astute observer of the world. Spotlighting the modern-day feelings of being uprooted and adrift, she is particularly fascinated by eccentric and mysterious men who live on the edge of society.
The jury praised Hungarian-born Mora for her writings that grapple with the defining topics of our day: migration, outsiders, and loss of homeland. It is one of the most prestigious prizes for German-language literature.
Winner of the German Book Prize, translated into many languages: Uwe Tellkamp's monumental work revives a vanished world in Dresden's bourgeoisie during the late GDR period, offering a major novel about society.
Former GDR author Christa Wolf remains one of Germany's most famous authors. Her death in 2011 prompted condolences from around the world. Her birthday on March 18 is a day to recall her legacy.
