Esther Kinsky

This week we speak to Esther Kinsky, recent winner of the Leipziger Buchmesse Prize and author of River from Fitzcarraldo Editions.

We talk about the interplay between memory and writing, walking the river Lea and urban change in London and trying to apprehend the gap between sensation and the experience of language.

River is available in English:

  • By far the most interesting critical response to RIVER and Esther Kinsky’s work in the UK yet. It’s great to hear such stimulating and pertinent questions.

    • Thanks for listening Iain and glad you enjoyed the podcast. It was great to discuss Esther’s process with her. Really enjoyed your vivid translation.
