Gardi’s work has been greatly celebrated in Germany and Austria. His novel Broken German (2016) was adapted into a prize-winning radio program and was reviewed extensively in the press, following Gardi’s nomination to the prestigious Bachmann Prize. Eine Runde Sache (2022) has already won vast recognition, having been awarded the Leipzig Book Fair prize. Moving between languages (particularly German and Hebrew), Gardi's novels engage with migration as a constitutive literary phenomenon. 

The discussion with Tomer Gardi, led by Dr Almog, will be in English.

The event is kindly supported by DAAD London ‘Centre Stage Deutsch’.
