Zoe Beck


I’m delighted to be reading with the bilingual author Zoe Beck at the end of November. Zoe divides her time between Edinburgh and Hamburg, which seems like a sensible plan,

Zoe’s short story “Draussen” won the prestigious 2010 Glauser Award in the “Best Short Crime Story” category and she’ll be reading in English from her first novel Das Alte Kind (The Old Child).

The event is sponsored by the Goethe Institute  and will take place in the Mitchell Library, Blythswood Room, level 5 on Tues 30th Nov, 6 – 7.30pm, You may even get to hear me speaking German badly, but as Mark Twain points out in his 1880 essay The Awful German Language it’s not so easy.
