We regret that this event has been cancelled
Raoul Schrott is one of Austria’s most successful and prolific writers. He will read from The Sex of the Angels, an ironic take on the way we have peopled the heavens across the centuries from ancient Greek legends of the origin of light, to the medieval darkness of the eclipse.
He will be joined by Karen Leeder, a writer, translator and academic, who teaches German at New College, Oxford. Her translation of Schrott’s Desert of Lop appeared in 2004 and a segment of The Sex of the Angels was commended in the inaugural translation competition of the ACF London (2017).
