On August, Mr. Tom Drury will come in Berlin since his bestsellers The End of Vandalism, Hunts in Dreams, and Pacific have been published in German. The new translated books are collected in one single volume named Grouse County and published by Klett-Cotta in German.


Tom Drury is an American novelist who wrote remarkable masterpieces such as The End of Vandalism (Grove, 1994), The Black Brook (Houghton Mifflin, 1998), Hunts in Dreams(Grove, 2001), The Driftless Area (Grove, 2006), Pacific (Grove, 2013). His books are famous worldwide and were translated into different languages such as German, French and Spanish. Tom Drury  meets success and fame wherever he goes.

Tom Drury´s gifted ability in writing has been honored by a number of awards, such as the Guggenheim Fellowship 2000-2001 and the Granta’s Best Young American Novelists in 1996. 

At this event, the author will read selections from these books in order to introduce people to his personal own style, which is very delicate and intense. It will represent an important chance for everyone to enjoy a peaceful moment of art and beauty.

Although he lives in New York, he attended the American Accademy in Berlin and because of this he keeps a real deep link with the German city, which he considers to be the capital of culture. The experience in Berlin influenced his work and obviously had a huge impact on his production. The way both cultural traditions find their raison d’être in this trilogy is mind-blowing and it represents one more reason to listen to the beauty of that masterpiece.

Berliners have the chance to meet their favourite writer in a very meaningful context, bridging the United States and Germany throughout pages.
