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.

Presented by the University's Foreign Languages Department.
