Words are Bridges: Swiss Literature in Translation

Thursday, 26.08.2021 – Thursday, 26.08.2021

The Swiss cultural network in India and the Jaipur Literature Festival "Words are Bridges" feature translator Tess Lewis in conversation with Swiss author Jonas Lüscher about his recent novel, Kraft. Winner of the Swiss Book Prize in 2017, Kraft was translated by Tess Lewis to English and published in 2020. Kraft is a timely and incisive satirical look at the interplay of philosophy and politics, the arrogance of Silicon Valley technocrats, and the difficulty we have reconciling our ideals to our personal lives.
