Andreas Martin Widmann read German Literature, English Literature and Theatre Studies at the Johannes-Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, where he also completed his PhD thesis on “Kontrafaktische Geschichtsdarstellung“ in 2008. He has taught German at Royal Holloway College and worked as a copy-writer in an advertising agency. For his first novel “Die Glücksparade” (2012) he was awarded the Robert-Gernhardt-Preis and the Mara-Cassens-Preis, the largest prize available for a first work of fiction in German. In 2013 he co-edited the first academic book on the German-Jewish writer Hans Keilson. He is currently working on his second novel.
My research interests include Historical Fiction, Modern and Post-War German, English and American Literature, Exile and Expatriate Literature, Narrative Theory and Creative Writing.
