Lutz Seiler wins the German Book Prize 2014 for Kruso

14.10.2014

We are excited to announce that Lutz Seiler was awarded the German Book Prize 2014 for his novel Kruso.

In its rational the Jury states: »Lutz Seiler employs lyrical, sensual language with a hint of magic to describe the summer of 1989 on the island of Hiddensee – a »gateway to evanescence«. [...] One can read this compelling Robinsonade involving the eponymous Kruso and the young dishwasher Edgar as an eloquent tale of both a personal and historic shipwreck – and as a poet’s coming of age novel. [...] Lutz Seiler’s first novel impresses with its thoroughly distinct poetic language, its sensual intensity and its worldliness.«

The prize includes a 25.000 Euro grant and was awarded on October 6th, 2014.
