Last year, Sharon won the prestigious Ingeborg Bachmann prize with short story “Herr Gröttrup Sits Down”, which she wrote in German and tells the story about the rocket scientist who worked for the Nazis, then the USSR.

Sharon will be joined by authors Colin Grant (A Smell of Burning, Vintage, 2016) and Umi Sinha (Belonging, Myriad Editions, 2015).
