About the Author
For New Directions, Susan Bernofsky has translated Yoko Tawada's Where Europe Begins, The Naked Eye, and Memoirs of a Polar Bear (winner of the Warwick Prize for Women in Translation), eight titles by the great Swiss-German modernist Robert Walser, and five books by Jenny Erpenbeck, including The End of Days (winner of the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize). She is the author of Clairvoyant of the Small: The Life of Robert Walser, and teaches at Columbia University, where she also directs the literary translation program.
Jenny Erpenbeck was born in East Berlin in 1967. New Directions publishes her books The Old Child & Other Stories, The Book of Words, and Visitation, which NPR called a story of the century as seen by the objects we've known and lost along the way.
Reviews
Erpenbeck's writing is so concentrated, so dense, that a slim volume of stories packs the weight of the world.--Ira Panic
Oppressive, charming, scary: every story has its own mood. Intelligently constructed, thought-provoking, full of the cunning of writerly finesse.
