I’m reading in two of my favourite German cities this week, Bamberg and Hamburg. I’ll be at the Villa Concordia in Bamberg on Thursday 9th September at 7pm. The event is free and details are available here. It will be a special pleasure for me as I wrote much of Naming the Bones / Das Alphabet der Knochen, during a year long residency at the Villa in 2007/8. I’m also looking forward to the train ride across Germany to Hamburg where I’ll be reading at the Harbourfront Literaturfestival at 8pm on the 10th. You can buy tickets for Harbourfront here! Das Alphabet der Knochen is translated by Wolfgang Müller and published by Kunstmann Verlag.
