Using sophisticated language to examine complex and contemporary issues, the Berlin-based writer Ulrike Draesner always manages to present taboos and desires of the 21st century in surprising twists. Her most recent novel, Sieben Sprünge vom Rand der Welt (Seven Leaps From the Edge of the World), develops a chorus of voices about the consequences of forced migration in Middle and Eastern Europe from 1939 up to today. The reading will be in English and German.
