Pavel Hak and Stefan Chwin

Fiction from the new Europe reaches the South Bank, via the striking new novels from Pavel Hak and Stefan Schwin.


Sniper, translated by Gerry Feehily, is Hak's nightmarish vision of war and human suffering in unnamed country - a strident parable about the moral and physical torture of which mankind is capable. Pavel Hak is a Czech writer exiled in France.

Stefan Schwin's novel Death in Danzig, translated by Philip Boehm, is a moving portrait of people in transition, between old and new, life and death. Communities under siege, the migration of people and the tragedies of World War II are movingly captured in a memorable cast of characters.

Stefan Chwin is a critic, essayist, and illustrator and Death in Danzig is his first novel to be translated into English.

The event will feature bi-lingual readings and the writers will be joined by their translators.
