Adelbert von Chamisso Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung

Ann Cotten

Adelbert-von-Chamisso-Prize 2014

Born in 1982 in Ames, Iowa, Ann Cotten grew up in Vienna, Austria. She has lived and worked in Berlin as a freelance writer since 2006. Her first book, a collection of poetry entitled Fremdwörterbuchsonette, was published in 2007, with Florida-Räume following in 2010. The jury said the following about her anthology of stories Der schaudernde Fächer: "In her work, the avant-gardist – who is not only familiar with European, but above all with Japanese culture – presents 17 highly musical stories that move confidently between poetry, realism, and abstraction and imaginatively and radically defy the everyday German language of our time."
