This year’s winner of the Leipzig Book Fair Award, David Wagner, has written a moving book about an existential inner journey through responsibility and happiness, death and love; it is the story of an organ transplant. The jury praised the laconic sense of humor of David Wagner’s brilliantly written novel. A sample translation will soon be available.
David Wagner is a recipient of the Walter Serner Prize, the Dedalus Prize for Contemporary Literature, the Georg K. Glaser Award and others.
Rowohlt author Nils Mohl has won the German Youth Literature Prize with his book "Es war einmal Indianerland". The award ceremony was held at Frankfurt Book fair on October 12th. The jury said that Mohl's book, the story about a seventeen-year-old boy who lives in a poor suburban area, was "artfully constructed", "a new and exciting type of coming-of-age-novel and love story" and that he succeeds in writing ambitious literary fiction that is close to his readers.
The book has also been recommended by New Books in German (Goethe Institute) who called it "a highly original novel that stands out clearly from others in the genre".
