Award for translated contemporary literaturesThe jury on the award winning duo 2016 Shumona Sinha and Lena Müller:“The diagnostic power of literature: The original novel was published in 2011 and is far more than a commentary on the current situation. […] The monolog of the first person narrator – an interpreter in a French asylum determining authority –[…] unyieldingly demonstrates what happens when the truth does not fit into the given scheme. Lena Müller has powerfully conveyed Sinha’s harsh prose into German with her unruly, poetic barbs that explore the effective power of language.”
