Austrian writer Lilian Faschinger is a prolific author, poet, and
translator. Faschinger typically incorporates into her works a rigorous
critique of Austrian society and customs, as viewed from a woman's
perspective. She will read from her most recent work.
Faschinger has written three novels, two radio plays, two volumes of
short stories, a volume of poetry, and completed multiple translations
from English-speaking authors. Her first novel "Die Neue Scheherazade"
(The New Scheherazade, 1985) attracted considerable critical
recognition. Her 2007 novel, "Stadt der Verlierer," (Town Full of
Losers), written in 2007, won the Friedrich Glauser Prize for best
(German) crime novel of the year in 2008.
