New Austrian Literature in Translation: Nadja Spiegel & Kurt Lanthaler


Newly translated short stories by Kurt Lanthaler and Nadja Spiegel feature in the current issue of the Irish literary magazine The Stinging Fly, launched earlier this month at Trinity College Dublin. Spiegel’s death and ophelia (translated by Rachel McNicholl) and Lanthaler’s The Flying Chairs (translated by Nóra Butler) are among the thirteen stories chosen for the magazine’s first ever all-translation issue, an initiative supported by the Irish Literary Exchange and the recently-founded Centre for Literary Translation at Trinity College Dublin. This marks the first time for either Spiegel (born in Dornbirn in 1992) or South Tyrolese native Lanthaler (born in Bozen/Bolzano in 1960) to be published in English.
