Robert Menasse wins the German Book Prize 2017 for THE CAPITAL

18.10.2017

We are excited to announce that Robert Menasse was awarded the German Book Prize 2017 for his novel The Capital.

In its rational the Jury states: »The humane is always worth striving for; it is never reliably given: With his novel Die Hauptstadt, Robert Menasse vividly shows that this also applies to the European Union. With great dramaturgical skill, he light-handedly digs into the deepest layers of this world we call our own. [...] With Die Hauptstadt, Robert Menasse has achieved the goal he set for himself: In the novel, contemporaneity is realised with such literary ability that contemporaries will recognise themselves in it and those born later will be better able to understand these times.«

The prize includes a 25.000 Euro grant and was awarded on October 9th, 2017.
