Festival Neue Literatur 2018, the first and only festival to spotlight German-language and U.S. fiction together, returns to NYC March 23-25 to venues across Manhattan and Brooklyn, including Deutsches Haus at NYU, Goethe-Institut New York, McNally Jackson Books and powerHouse Books.

The theme of Festival Neue Literatur 2018 is “INSIDER | OUTSIDER,” curated by Peter Blackstock, senior editor at Grove Atlantic.

The international writers and publishing luminaries featured this year─Lisa Ko, Ruth Franklin, Atticus Lish, Yoko Tawada, John, Wray, Karen Phillips, Ann Goldstein, Barbara Epler, Nava Ebrahimi, Robert Prosser, Philipp Winkler, Fatma Aydemir, Ursula Fricker, and Meral Kureyshi─explore in their work questions of identity and belonging in a fracturing Europe and beyond, using race, religion, immigration status, politics, and even football hooliganism as lenses to explore contemporary society and the recent past.
