Shaun Whiteside has translated from German works by Freud, Schnitzler, Musil and Nietzsche, and, most recently, The Weekend by Bernhard Schlink (2011). His translation of Magdalena the Sinner by Lilian Faschinger won the 1996 Schlegel-Tieck Award. He lives in London.
"Their books sizzle with a kind of lefty jazz: they're linguistically and culturally hip, historically astute, with a heart worn challengingly on the sleeve ... Manituana unspools mesmerizingly like an old Hollywood movie."--Todd McEwen, Guardian "A highly compelling epic of great beauty and power."--Daily Mail "Manituana shuns anachronism as it sets about delivering a fast-flowing, densely peopled, richly decorated story of s precious way of life, and thought, on the brink of the modern abyss."--Boyd Tonkin, The Independent "Radical and fascinating."--Morning Star
