A Balla Reading at the Slovak Institute in Berlin

In the last two years, numerous translations of Slovak literature appeared in German, among them the three award-winning contemporary novels. The Slovak Institute in Berlin together with the Honorary Consulate of the Slovak Republic in Leipzig and with the Slovak Literary Center (LIC) in Bratislava present a series of readings with the translator Stefanie Bose

The first reading streams online this Saturday, April 10th 2021 at 6PM. It will present Balla's novel In the Name of the Father, "a philosophical story from the everyday reality of an aging man living in a small Slovak town in the second half of the 20th century." Together, we will delve into the world of the protagonist's thoughts.

The book was translated by Marie Theres-Cermann and published in Wieser Verlag in 2019.
