Re­com­men­ded by New Books in Ger­man: Keller


We are delighted that the following Penguin Random House title has made it onto New Books in German's Autumn 2023 recommendations list:


Wild Maneuvers

Judith Keller

Judith Keller: Wild Maneuvers (Luchterhand)

"Keller writes vividly about what it is to escape the everyday, about bonds of female friendship and the rapidly changing world we live in. Making a case for fiction being stranger than the truth, this is a bold and extremely readable novel by a standout voice in contemporary Swiss literature."

New Books in German promotes German-language literature and non-fiction for translation into all languages. Twice a year, NBG convenes expert juries in the UK and the US to select titles from submissions by German-language publishers. The juries, which are made up of translators, agents, editors, publishers, scouts and booksellers, select titles that represent the range of new German-language publications and that they believe have a chance of success in the English-language markets.

With the recommendation of New Books in German, the selected titles not only qualify for potential translation funding by the Goethe Institute, among others, but also enjoy increased visibility with the NBG endorsement.
