Launch, Haus der Kulturen der Welt

On 24 September 2014 we are launching our first two publications: Starstruck, a volume of interconnected short stories by Rajeev Balasubramanyam (GB), and the novel ALFF by Jakob Nolte (GER). Like all of Fiktion’s titles, they will be available simultaneously in English and German. Both books can be downloaded for free from various e-book platforms as well as our website www.fiktion.cc in ePub, MOBI, and .txt formats. You can also read them on the site in our purpose-built Reader.

Rajeev Balasubramanyam’s Starstruck is a collection of ten linked narratives, each “starring” a celebrity to dark, surreal, and often hilarious effect. Jakob Nolte’s debut novel in the style of a high-school mystery thriller takes us on a breakneck journey through an imaginary New England of the 1990s.

On 24 September 2014 at 7:00 pm the authors Rajeev Balasubramanyam and Jakob Nolte will read from their work at a book launch taking place at Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin. The audience can follow the reading in German and English via our Reader. The event will be presented by the German writer Tilman Rammstedt.
