HainEsther Kinsky

We are excited to announce that Esther Kinsky has been awarded the Prize of the Leipzig Book Fair 2018 for Grove.


From the Jury's statement:

»What a school of perception. The stimulus reduction emphasises every last inconspicuous detail with almost supernatural exactitude; the quietness swells into a chant of objects […] One can only do justice to the unspectacular melody of this book and the rhythmical precision of its sentences, if one reads it slowly, with a patience that expects nothing, only then to be rewarded with astonishment at the abundance of its detail.«

The Prize of the Leipzig Book Fair is awarded in three categories (Fiction, Non Fiction, Translation) and is endowed with EUR 60.000 in total.
