The possibly best living German novelist Reinhard Jirgl has just been announced as winner of the 2010 Büchner Prize. Congratulations. He joins last year’s winner Walter Kappacher as yet another major German-language novelist who has been accorded the most prestigious German prize yet hasn’t been translated into English yet. For shame! Here is my review of one of Jirgl’s best novels. For more undeservedly untranslated German writers, I made a list here and another one here. Dalkey? Serpent’s tail? Open Letter Books?
