Swiss author Peter Stamm believes we don’t read literature to get news, but to have it confirmed that the world is as it is, that people are as we are. That we all speak a common language, can understand each other and that our life has a meaning.
Peter Stamm is the author of such novels as “Seven Years”, “On a Day Like This” and “Unformed Landscape”, and the short-story collections “We’re Flying” and “In Strange Gardens and Other Stories”. His prize-winning books have been translated into more than 30 languages. For his entire body of work and his accomplishments in fiction, he was short-listed for the Man Booker International Prize in 2013, and in 2014 he won the prestigious Friedrich Hölderlin Prize. He lives in Switzerland.
Listen to Peter Stamm read from his works, followed by a conversation with Gauri Bramhe.
