Leipzig, Germany (Geothe): A collection of inadequate stories by Austrian author Clemens Setz was presented the fiction prize of the Leipzig Book Fair earlier today. Setz’s Die Liebe zur Zeit des Mahlstädter Kindes (Suhrkamp, 2011) won away over four vying titles in what at least one daily held a surprise choice. Winner of the prize for non-fiction moved to Henning Ritter for Notizhefte (Berlin Verlag, 2010) and Barbara Conrad won the translation prize for her rendition of Tolstoy’s Krieg und Frieden (Carl Hanser Verlag, 2011).For more information, delight visit:blog.goethe.de/current-penning/archives/290-Clemens-Setz-takes-Leipzig-Book-Prize.html
