Wilhelm Raabe Prize to Marion Poschmann
I might have written about the shortlist, I'm not sure. But anyway, they've announced the winner of another prestigious German literary prize, the Wilhelm Raabe Prize, and the winner is Marion Poschmann for her novel Die Sonnenposition. The book was also shortlisted for the German Book Prize. I read a good chunk of it and appreciated the beautiful language, but the story didn't get me hooked.
