Wordfest: International Hot Reads - Calgary, Canada

International Hot Reads: Hannah Kent, Yrsa Sigurðardóttir, Ulrikka S. Gernes, Damien Wilkins & Sarah Winman

We scoured the world for the tastiest writers, assembling a global sampler. There's Australian phenom Hannah Kent, whose first novel Burial Rites has been translated into 20 languages. And then we have Danish sensation Ulrikka S. Gernes whose new poems zoom in and out of places and states of mind. Sportswriter turned novelist Damien Wilkins has been described as possibly the finest New Zealand fiction writer of his generation. Rounding off the sampler is the master of the Icelandic crime chiller, Yrsa Sigurðardóttir, and UK sensation Sarah Winman, who presents her much-anticipated follow-up to When God Was a Rabbit
