Frequencies: Writer Clemens Setz and Translator Peter Constantine

“Every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." The 26-year-old Clemens J. Setz has given us a novel written in such bold language and thought that it could make all the fathers he has written about jealous. The Goethe-Institut Chicago invites you to an intimate evening of literature and discussion with Austrian writer Clemens J. Setz and award-winning translator Peter Constantine. Setz reads from his celebrated book Frequencies and presents several of his poems.


Recorded on Monday, October 18, 2010 at the Goethe-Institut Chicago.
