E DITO RIA L TABLE OF CONTENTS

The new Foreign Rights Catalogue from CARLSEN! We are pleased to announce that we have added titles from our new publishing arm “Aladin”, which CARLSEN’s previous publisher Klaus Humann founded last year. It’s interesting to note that various organizations and foundations sponsor translations of German literature, like the famous “Goethe Institute”. Titles that are eligible for translation funding are specially marked. Please contact CARLSEN or your current agent to discuss this further. We’re always happy to answer any questions you may have. Have fun browsing! With best wishes Christiane Bartelsen, Daniela Steiner and Sylvia Schuster

Everything is Spinning by Rosemarie Eichinger 14+ | 208 pages 978-3-551-52049-4 Max wants to tackle the whole thing systematically, and he tells me there are worse things in life. I guess he’s right. But unlike Max, I don’t know how to tackle my brain tumour systematically. At least I’m not disturbed and mentally unstable – that’s Max’s privilege. It all started with a list. Things you had to do before you kicked the bucket. And suddenly it was all go, go, go. Because we wanted to do something meaningful. Even Pia joined in. Because you couldn’t look away. That’s the most important thing. More or less. At least it’s one of the most important things. Just like Max and Pia.

AWARD WINNER!

Since 2010 “Chicken House” and the arts editorial of the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” have chosen from a large number of submissions the most gripping, remarkable and most outstanding debut – here comes this year’s winner!

Rosemarie Eichinger was born in 1970 and moved to Vienna twenty years ago to study history, where she still lives to this day with her daughter and her partner. She started writing after graduation. Her small dark bathroom is her favourite place to concentrate on a story and try out first sentences.
