Dr Mererid Puw Davies, Senior Lecturer, UCL German

Time for a holiday? What will you be reading? Mererid Puw Davies offers highlights from the contemporary German literary scene and newly re-issued classic works: all of them entertaining, gripping or fortifying – and all in English translation.

Learn more about: Irmgard Keun’s ‘Weimar-era Bridget Jones’; Ingo Schulz’s humorous panorama of the post-reunification East; Daniel Kehlmann’s twin stories of the explorer Humboldt and the mathematician Gauss; Hans Keilson’s Dutch couple offering shelter to a Jew during the German occupation; and more. Find out what the well-read holidaymaker is packing this year.
