The ELN Liars’ League – Near & Far: New European Writing
Writers write, actors read, audience listens, everybody wins. That’s the motto of the Liars’ League, the award-winning, globe-straddling short story night which has been running in London since 2007. This showcase of European literature in translation celebrates fresh talent from Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Slovenia and the Czech Republic. Actors will read stories from some of the most exciting European authors, featuring extraordinary characters like Sigitas Parulskis‘s World War II photographer and Jan Krasnowolski‘s drug-smuggler-turned-refugee babysitter. From Katerina Tuckova‘s Czech witches via Nora Bossong‘s bereaved businesswoman to Tadej Golob‘s struggling comic-book writer, these fictions will take you far from home, bringing the foreign into focus and turning the familiar strange.
