Having your say
T
he 2013 Book Fair is shaped by the items presented in this seminar
programme. Behind each item, there is someone with a story to tell
or an opinion to voice.
Each item is important and unique, but taken together they form a
context. At close range they constitute unique tales and expressions, but
together they form a pattern and a motif.
The motif is our current era, coloured by our history and replete with the signs and phenomena of
our times. With wonderful literature, books, as the common denominator.
This year, we focus on Romania – Romania has the floor! Great storytellers and small stories, ­conveying
culture and history and building understanding. In 16 seminars, we hereby give the floor to Romania!
Bangladesh is a country often associated with disasters in Western media. We have invited five poets
– giving you the opportunity to listen to completely different stories.
Altogether 375 seminars are presented in the Göteborg Book Fair's seminar programme. In this
booklet we present the seminars held in languages other than the Scandinavian.
We are proud to present the 2013 Göteborg Book Fair seminar programme.

A celebration for book-lovers
Göteborg Book Fair 2012:
99 136
Numbers of visitors
The Göteborg Book Fair affects many more
­ eople than just the exhibitors, guests and
p
­v isitors – the air vibrates with conversations
about books and culture far outside its walls.
Media coverage, with approximately 1. 555 accredited journalists, massive attention from the
press and live reporting, features and news items
on the radio and television, reaches further afield
than the city, even abroad.
When the first Göteborg Book Fair was held
in 1985, there were 5. 000 visitors. Recently, that
figure has been around 100. 000 – a magical
trend for a fair that makes Göteborg the capital
city of books for four days each year.

Every September, these are two of the most
common questions that book-lovers ask each
other. Publishers, authors, agents, librarians,
teachers, literature enthusiasts and consumers of
arts and culture travel to Göteborg from Sweden,
Scandinavia and the rest of the world. And for
the people of Göteborg, the fair is a sure sign of
autumn.

G
öteborg Book Fair is an important
event for many people in the book
business, but it is so much more
than this, it is also:
A manifestation of arts and culture. A literary
festival. A celebration of the written word and
freedom of expression. And, not least, a natural
part of the year’s events for ordinary readers.
“You are going to the fair, aren’t you?”
“I’ll see you in Göteborg then?”

The fair at the heart of everything
phOTO: NIKLAS MAUPOIX
The fully-integrated hotel, fair and conference facilities, with The Swedish Exhibition &
Congress Centre and Gothia Towers, are part of
Göteborg’s event area, with arenas such as Scandinavium and Ullevi, the Liseberg amusement park,
the Museum of World Culture, Filmstaden Bergakungen cinema context and the Universeum
­Science Discovery Center.
But the area around the fair also has plenty of
restaurants, cafés, bars and hotels, as well as small
parks and other oases.
Trade visits 2012
It is not only Göteborg’s main railway station
that is within walking/tram distance, but also a
great many of the city’s most important arenas for
art and culture: the Göteborg Museum of Art, Göteborg City Theatre and the Concert Hall on Götaplatsen, the Stora Teatern theatre on Avenyn and
the Göteborg Opera by the Göta älv River.
Whatever visitors to the fair need, finding it is
always more or less the same:
“It’s just around the corner.”

Focus 2012:
Nordic literature
Main partners:
Nordic Council/
Nordic Council of Ministers
• The official Nordic co­operation
had its 60th Anniversary, the
Nordic Council prestigious
literature prize was awarded
for the fiftieth time, the new
Nordic prize for c­ hildren and
young people’s literature was
announced at the Fair and last
but not least – Nordic was as
cool as it still is! In other words,
the Nordic Council of Ministers
and the Nordic Council had
many good reasons for c­ reating
the Nordic theme 2012.
Every second of hard work
was worthwhile. Besides the
seminars we had 70 activities
in the 135 square meter stand,
and we were amply rewarded.
Audiences flocked to the stand,
national and inter­national
­media reported, and we continue to watch the triumph of
Nordic literature and culture
around the world.

A
specific country or linguistic area, a region
or a topical cultural issue – every year, the
­­Göte­borg Book Fair has a specific theme that
pervades the entire fair. The theme for 2013 is
Romanian literature. These annual themes permeate
the fair, entailing a great deal of positive attention not
only for literature but also for the culture of the relevant
countries and linguistic areas.
phOTO: NIKLAS MAUPOIX
A new focus every year
The 2010 theme, African literature, received extra
attention. There were 68 participating authors from
28 countries, as well as 15 African publishers, and the
­G öteborg Book Fair’s broadest theme so far generated measurably increased interest and a large number
of translations into Swedish and other Nordic languages.
– Our aim is that interest in a particular cultural area
will result in more translations – in both directions. Each
theme causes many ripples on the water, says Gunilla
Sandin, Head of Programme for the Göteborg Book Fair.
Naturally, the Nordic region has been well represen-
ted over the years. This has been done by focusing on
individual countries, as well as by using common Nordic
themes, as in 2012.
The Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania
have all been the subjects of individual focus, as have
British, Spanish, Polish, Dutch and German literature.
6
Subjects such as freedom of speech, children’s literature,
multiculturalism and indigenous peoples have also all
received special attention.
The Book Fair’s partner in the work towards this year’s
theme is the Romanian Cultural Institute.
In 2014 Brazilian literature will be the focal theme.
Focus 2008: Latvia
Partner: Latvian Literature Centre
• The slogan of the Latvian participation at the Göteborg Book
Fair as the focus country in 2008
was “Let us build a bridge across
the wide sea”, t­ aken from the
title of a novel by Latvian writer
Dzintars Sodums. Just a few
months before the economic
recession hit, this very special
event, actually the widest international exposure of Latvian
literature so far, spotlighted
Latvian literature and also Latvian and Swedish cooperation –
close neighbours yet with an expanse of water between them.
Latvian writers are becoming
increasingly popular in Sweden,
in part owing to our participation in the Göteborg Book Fair
over the years – before and after
the impressive showcasing in
2008. Several translations from
Latvian to Swedish have followed since then.

The 2012 Book Fair turned out to be an extremely fruitful event for one of the IRC
participants, Bonnier Agency Group. After several bidding sessions that attracted a lot of
attention, the company sold the rights to En Man Som Heter Ove by Fredrik Backman to
Cappelen Damm in Norway, ArtPeople/People’s Press in Denmark and to Fischer Krueger
Scherz in Germany. In addition, the Italian publisher Mondadori bought the rights to the
book just after the fair had finished.

Austrian Chamber of Commerce, The

Ministry of Culture, The Swiss Booksellers

and Swiss Embassies in Sweden
• We very much enjoyed collaborating
with Bok & Bibliotek 2011 and presenting
German-speaking literature at the Book Fair.
The interest in the focal theme was indeed
beyond our expectations. A lot of new literary voices from Austria, Switzerland and
Germany were translated to Swedish and
the Book Fair definitely helped to introduce
and display them. The Swedish publishing
houses were a great support and we established a lot of new and inspiring contacts.
Some of the authors visiting the Book Fair
2011 are about to come out with new translations – exactly what we were hoping for!
In the years 2009–2012 there were 505
translations made from German to Swedish, and in 2011 alone the number of
translations increased 40 per cent.

Focus 2010: Africa
Partner: The Nordic Africa Institute
• The African theme at the Göteborg Book
Fair 2010 was a great success. About 70
authors and other guests from Africa attended and the theme was featured in over
100 programme events and received widespread publicity in both the Swedish and the
foreign media. 27 books by African authors
were translated into Swedish and presented
at the fair. An estimate is that around 20
titles have been translated in the years to
follow. We can see that African authors are
frequently invited to Sweden and appear
in literary programs on TV, in media, and in
seminars. Many cultural co-operations take
place in exchange with Africa. The Nordic
Africa Institute was very happy with the
Africa theme and felt that the result was a
great success. A prerequisite for the success
was the involvement of so many publishers,
institutes and organisations.

an idea of the supply of titles and meet
international colleagues with a specific
interest in Nordic literature. At the fair you
will find the industry’s largest representation of publishing companies, agents and

what makes Göteborg Book Fair the foremost venue for trading in Nordic literary
rights.

– The International Rights ­Centre in
Göteborg has a great atmosphere
­­­
and
is a good space for ­meetings – one has
privacy, yet it’s also very ­communal. The
Göteborg Book Fair is also a great celebration of international authors and it’s inspiring to see how well attended the fair
is by the public, says Andy Hine, Foreign
Rights Director at UK-based Little, Brown
Book Group.
Johanna Kinch, literary agent at Bonnier Group Agency, agrees:
– The Göteborg Book Fair is one of the
nicest fairs. It’s vibrant and accessible
and you get to meet not only a lot of
­Scandinavian publishers, but also many
German, Dutch and French publishers.

RomaniaN Literature
A
A Bridge
of Books
few years before Romania’s access
to the EU, in 2007, the Romanian
philosopher and essayist Andrei
Pleşu reflected that Romania had
always considered itself a part of
Europe and that we, Romanians, have Europe in
our blood and our spirit, but even in our libraries
and books. However, this community
spirit was not shared by all of our European fellow countries, possibly because of the isolation that Romania
had lived in during almost half a century of communism. There was still a
distance between us that Pleşu suggested could be surmounted with ”a
bridge of books” – a challenge that
stands true to the present day and
which is one of the best ways to get to
know each other in a profound way.
Romanian lite r atur e , in particular, has
long functioned as a prism for Europe and
the E­ uropean experience: many of our writers

live in other countries and even write in other
­languages, some of them returning to their
­R omanian roots, others taking their adoptive
homes as a starting point. This is the case for
several of this year’s guests, among them Cătălin
Dorian Florescu and Dana ­Grigorcea. At the
same time, we wish to show that the literature
written in Romania during the latest
decades has a highly artistic level.
Topic-wise, it can be about ­existential
issues (Mircea Cărtărescu), Romania’s recent history ­(Gabriela
Adameşteanu), the feminine experience (Svetlana Cârstean, Ioana
Nicolaie), documentary ­realism akin
to the widely ­successful Romanian
movie wave (Dan Lungu) or about
the tragic destiny of the Armenian
people (Varujan Vosganian). This is why Romania is represented at this year’s Book Fair in Göteborg by two equally strong s­ ides: literature written in Romanian, in Romania, and exile literature
written by Romanian writers settled in Canada,
Germany, Switzerland and the United States.
It can be safely stated that Romanian literature
is living a boom that can only be compared with
the blooming interwar period, when names such
as E.M. Cioran, Eugène Ionesco, Mircea E­ liade,
­Gherasim Luca, Benjamin Fondane and Tristan
Tzara engraved themselves into the ­history of
world literature. Through the Romanian-­German
Herta Müller, Romania recently received half
of a Nobel prize, and there is already talk of
other R
­ omanian writers, among them ­Mircea
Cărtărescu and Norman Manea, worthy of
the same honour. At the same time, there are
­numerous others, especially among those who
debuted in the nineties, who have been translated into different world languages, from English
and French to Arabic and Hebrew.

That Romanian literature is strong and exciting is thus proven by its presence in many other
languages, but also by Romania’s participation
as the country in focus to the Book Fair in Göteborg and recently even to the book fairs in Paris
and Turin. We see this status as an honour and
an acknowledgement of the strength of our literature, but also as an acknowledgement of
the efforts of the Romanian Cultural Institute of
Stockholm to make its country’s literature known
to a Swedish public. We believe culture to be
Romania’s big chance to conquer the world, with
literature playing a major role in the process.

What are academic
publications doing in the library?
The conditions for scientific communication are
changing swiftly to meet increasing demands for
reach, impact and free access to research results.
Libraries are turning into 24-7 stores for scientific
products. From their archives, publications can
be fetched for reading and printing at cost price.

ranking? A discussion about how scientific libraries are taking on new challenges.

Latvian poet Imants Ziedonis (1933–2013) was
an innovative virtuoso and a master of the form,
who also wrote multifaceted prose poems. He
enjoyed immense popularity, almost on the level
of a m

a form of protection against Soviet oppression.

Frans de Waal
Human morality comes from within
Mankind’s morality does not come from any
­higher power – it comes from within. Morals,
compassion, a sense of right and wrong and even
religion have all been around for as long as humans, and are the result of evolution. This according to Frans de Waal, one of the world’s leading
primatologists and selected by Time Magazine as
one of the hundred most influential people of our
time, in his new book The Bonobo and the Atheist.
de Waal is well known for his vivid stories recounting how bonobos and other mammals to a high
degree possess traits we refer to as “human”. Now
he takes a step further, dragging religion down to
earth. Frans de Waal, himself an atheist, emphasises that religion can play a positive role in society
while criticising some in the New Atheist movement for being dogmatic.

In the words of the jury: “Isol creates picture books
from the eye-level of the child. Her pictures vibrate with energy and explosive emotions. With
a restrained palette and ever-innovative pictorial
solutions, she shifts ingrained perspectives and
pushes the boundaries of the picture book medium. Taking children’s clear view of the world as
her starting point, she addresses their questions
with forceful artistic expression and offers open
answers. With liberating humour and levity, she
also deals with the darker aspects of existence.”

What do you do when someone dumps rubbish
in your street? How do you deal with anti-social
neighbours? How do you organize a street party? These are some of the questions faced by a
class of 11–13 year olds working on Storyline, Our
­Sustainable Street. For five weeks they took on the
roles of families who had moved into a newly built
street in the fictitious English town of Danbury.
Working on tasks linked to the syllabus for English, they developed their skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing – and had fun. Sharon
­Ahlquist, senior university lecturer in English,
talks about Storyline, Our Sustainable Street.

Prison poetry
Books – a medium in transformation
Mircea Cărtărescu, Norman Manea,
Gabriela Adameşteanu, Marius Chivu
”I was a Presidential candidate in Belarus when I
was assaulted by people dressed in black. I ended
up in a hospital, from which I was abducted by
masked men. In the middle of the night. From the
intensive care unit. Naked. From that moment on,
I recall the horror.” Eva Nyaklyayewa talks about
the new collection of poems by her father, Uladzimir Nyaklyayew, with publisher Maria Söderberg
and translator Janina Orlov.
Language: English and Swedish
Books are no longer what they once were – nor
are our conception of them. With the launch of
e-readers and tablets, the borders of the book –
as well as the reading and writing of them – have
been dissolved. Books are now a medium among
many others. The question is what happens with
the physical artefact once it becomes digital?
What is the e-book capable of and what does the
future look like for printed books? An international
panel of literature scholars, media experts, software designers and strategists discuss the digital
transformation of the book as a medium.
With: Alexandra Borg, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and Bonnierförlagen, Adam Hyde, Booksource, Berlin, Jesper Olsson, Linköping University, and Ben Vershbow, The Institute for the
Future of the Book & NYPL, New York.
Moderator: Pelle Snickars, National Library of
Sweden.
Admittedly, Mircea Cărtărescu has little in
common with Norman Manea, while ­Norman
Manea has little in common with ­G abriela
Adameşteanu. And it’s how it should be,
literature’s foremost voices are always unique.
Still, whenever one tries to outline an abstract
picture of Romanian literature through the times,
there are certain notions that always come up,
such as the avant-garde, black humour or exile.
It is t­herefore worth discussing whether Romanian literature, history or society have seen any
­undercurrents that have contributed to the actual
shape of Cărtărescu’s, Manea’s or Adameşteanu’s
­writings. Contributing to the talk: Marius Chivu,
one of Romania’s most influential literary critics
and an author in his own right.

Michael Kaiser
Secretary of Culture and corporate healer
”In today’s financial situation, we Americans may
have something to offer Europe,” says Michael
Kaiser, CEO of John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC. He has been dubbed America’s Secretary of Culture – even though
such a position doesn’t exist. You also keep hearing the epithet “The Turnaround King”. In plain
English, Kaiser is a wizard at getting private funding for highbrow culture: he has practically made
Kennedy Center the national stadium for the fine
arts and saved The Royal Opera House in Covent
Garden from financial ruin and looming fiasco by
raising 100 million dollars in 18 months. But Kaiser
is controversial, especially in France where they
find his brazen fondness for using private funding
for culture unpalatable. Michael Kaiser, whose
courses in Arts management are available in 70
countries, is here to share his experiences.

The thing about writing
and reading short stories
The New York Times recently proclaimed the short
story to be the ideal literary genre for the new digital world. Short stories have a tradition going
back to the Ancient Greeks and to this day they
continue to engage many prose writers. Some of
them, like Hemingway, Carver, Borges or Munro,
have specialized in the short format and turned
it into a fine art. But what is so special about short
stories apart from the format and how does the
format shape the content? The topic is discussed
by Gabriela Adameşteanu, Daniela Crăsnaru and
Dan Lungu, who have all contributed to the Romanian short story anthology Skräpliv [Trash Life],
first published in Swedish (2013).

Marlene Streeruwitz
Is there such a thing as
a literary language?
In her literary work, Austrian writer Marlene Streeruwitz discusses the role of the individual in the
public sphere, addressing themes as diverse as
her country’s attitude towards contemporary Nazi
terrorism and how to survive as a feminist. By a
deliberate use of language, she has created her
very own aesthetic form and a platform for the
subject: her heroines often have names resembling her own in order to highlight the absurdity in
the reader’s attitude towards biographical matter,
especially when it comes to female authors. Meet
award-winning writer and playwright Marlene
Streeruwitz, one of Austria’s most radical voices,
in a conversation with Swedish culture journalist
Yvonne Ihmels about how to survive as a feminist.

How natural science turns our

The bonobo is an ape that resembles you – if you
have an innate sense of right and wrong and prefer to settle disputes in a peaceful manner. Studies
of this peace-loving animal form the basis for the
groundbreaking work of primatologist Frans de
Waal, which has convinced many that em­pathy,
morals and a conscience are biologically determined traits, not specifically human constructs. In
his new book, The Bonobo and the Atheist, de Waal
discusses the possibility of an evolutionary basis
for religion as well. In her latest book, science journalist Lone Frank focuses on the very source of
inherited behaviour – the brain. In Mindfield, she
takes a look at both the latest cerebral discoveries
and how an increasingly thorough schematic of
this complex organ affects our self-perception.
Journalist Sharon Jåma helms this conversation
about the significance of biology and whether
there is a natural explanation for everything.

Inside a writer’s brain
Several literary critics have stated that Mircea

feeling of stepping into a writer’s brain. A brain
populated by mythological, hallucinatory beings
and fantastic symbols such as butterflies, dazzling
light, labyrinths, endless carpets and ­doors leading
into other time dimensions. Mircea Cărtărescu

body of work that has been described as “majestic” and “grandiose”, “an intoxicating reading

Colombia beyond magic realism
Bengali poetry from
Rabindranath Tagore till today
Héctor Abad Faciolince
Colombian Héctor Abad Faciolince is one of the
most prominent writers of the generation following the wave of magic realism and iconic Latin
Americans such as García Márquez, Borges and
­Allende. In 1987 Abad Faciolince was forced to flee
when his father, a famous medical doctor and academic who fought against oppression and social
inequality in Colombia, was brutally murdered.
Twenty years later this trauma became the subject
of one of his most famous and acclaimed novels,
Oblivion: A Memoir. Héctor Abad Faciolinces has
also worked as a journalist and translator. Several
of his novels have been translated into English
and many other languages. Here in a conversation
about his writing with Joan M. Álvarez Valencia,
director of Insituto Cervantes in Stockholm.
The Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore (1861–1941)
won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. He was
the first writer from outside the European continent to receive this honour. This year we want
to celebrate the 100-years’ anniversary for this
event. Joining us in this celebrations are the Bengali ­p oets Nirmalendu Goon, Ruby Rahman,
Muhammad Samad and Anisur Rahman who
will join in a dialogue with Swedish poets Lars
Häger and Magnus Dahlerus. Their dialogue will
highlight the influence of Tagore and post Tagore
Bengali poetry and even look into contemporary
poetry trends in Bangladesh.

The writer’s involvement
in the public arena
When a society has problems, it is most often writers who throw themselves into the public arena,
fighting for the common good. Such involvement
may threaten to overshadow one’s writings and
expose the writer to everything from public hate
to physical danger, especially in autocratic states.
As a result, certain writers refuse to take on a public role, arguing that they have a right to their
ivory tower just like every other citizen. Others are
of the opinion that writers have a responsibility to
be involved in society life, at any price. The theme
is discussed by Mircea Cărtărescu and Norman
Manea, who have themselves experienced most
implications of their civic involvement.

Courage and the love of truth
Last year, Syrian novelist and journalist Samar
Yazbek won the Tucholsky award from Swedish
PEN for her reports from the Syrian uprising –
“writings characterised by courage and the love
of truth, grounded in a defence of the dignity of
those individual citizens who are caught in the
middle of the conflict”. Yazbek is one of Syria’s
most important voices in the struggle for human
rights. She was forced to leave the country in 2011
after having being arrested by security forces, and
today she is living in exile in Paris. Cinnamon is

Life in the Gulag
In 1946, after five years’ imprisonment, first in
German labour camps and later in the Gulag, Lev
Mishchenko receives an unexpected letter from
his beloved Sveta. Over the following eight years,
they miraculously manage to exchange more
than 1.200 emotionally charged letters. British
historian Orlando Figes struck upon a unique find
when he came across the couple’s letters in a Russian archive. In his celebrated book, Just Send Me
Word, their Gulag-era correspondence presents us
with a rare glimpse into prison life. Orlando Figes,
whose work includes the critically acclaimed The

and the will to survive during horrible conditions.

The image of the Roma
in contemporary literature
Roma are undeniably one of the world’s most exposed peoples: constantly persecuted, banished
from large parts of Europe already during the 16th
century, enslaved in others, decimated under Nazi
rule, excluded from society under communist
times, exploited by criminal organizations in the
new, open Europe. In literature, Roma are often
described as struggling people on the outskirts of
society, but also as colorful personalities deeply
intimate with nature’s ancient laws. The topic of
how Roma live on in contemporary literature is
discussed by Cătălin Dorian Florescu, Elisabeth
Hjorth and Varujan Vosganian, who have written about Roma in their latest books, Dezideriu
Gergely, executive director of the European
Roma Rights Centre (ERRC) in Budapest, and KlasGöran Karlsson, writer and historian.
Jordanian children’s rights champion Hanaa alRamli’s passion for books spurred her to use social media to spread her idea about creating libraries in refugee camps around the Middle East, by
collecting books from private donors. The project
also includes activities aimed at encouraging and
motivating children to visit the library and to read.
The initiative, formed in a Palestine refugee camp
in Jordan in 2009, has now spread across the Arab
world. In three years 25 libraries, each comprising
3.000 books, have been constructed in refugee
camps and other underdeveloped areas. Hanaa

Richard Ford
The mysterious forces that drive mankind
In spite of suffering from dyslexia, American writer Richard Ford decided to study literature. He
never regarded his reading and writing difficulties as a handicap. “Being forced to read slowly
has only made my relationship to language more
profound.” In 1996, Ford was awarded the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for his novel Independence
Day. His latest novel, Canada, recently translated
into Swedish, is a story about mankind’s darkest,
most powerful and most enigmatic driving forces.
The writer transports us to 1950s America where
the Parsons – a married couple – commit a bank
robbery in Montana, setting the stage for a winding journey for the family. Meet Richard Ford in a
conversation about his latest novel and his writing
career with literature critic Ingrid Elam.
David Safier’s funny, but fundamentally serious,
book Bad Karma is about a successful TV celebrity
named Kim Lange. She dies when a sink from a
Russian space station falls on her head and she
awakes in an ant-hill, sporting six legs. She realises that this is the price she has to pay for all the
bad karma she has accumulated. Bad Karma is the
debut novel from the award-winning German
script-writer David Safier, with domestic sales
figures upwards of 1.5 million copies. He has initiated the foundation Gutes Karma Stiftung, which
supports school projects worldwide. Meet Safier

being asked whether Germans really have a sense
