In a special event co-sponsored by the International Writing Program, award-winning German novelist, scriptwriter and former IWP Resident Christopher Kloeble will read from Almost Everything Very Fast, his debut novel in English. With otherworldly bright characters, deadpan humor, and dark depths that bring to mind a Wes Anderson film, Almost Everything Very Fast takes readers from an insular Bavarian village on an adventurous journey of discovery. Christopher Kloeble’s plays U-Turn and Memory have been staged in Vienna, Munich, Heidelberg and Nuremberg. His first film script, Inclusion, was produced in 2011, and he is the author of two previous novels published in German. He lives in Berlin and New Delhi.

"Almost Everything Very Fast is ingeniously structured, intelligently written, and moves at a steady, forceful pace. It is entirely enjoyable, from start to finish." — Ha Jin
