Discussion with Senthuran Varatharajah, and reception following the reading


Author and current Villa Aurora Fellow Senthuran Varatharajah will read and discuss excerpts from a forthcoming English translation of his debut novel Vor der Zunahme der Zeichen.

About Vor der Zunahme der Zeichen
Completely by accident, Senthil Vasuthevan and Valmira Surroi start a conversation on Facebook. Senthil is working on his doctorate in philosophy in Berlin, Valmira is studying art history in Marburg. For seven days they tell one another about their lives, never meeting in person. Their messages touch on their families, fleeing from civil wars, their childhood in refugee homes and their times of school and study. In his debut novel, Senthuran Varatharajah writes insightfully about origins and arrival, remembrance and forgetting, and about the cracks in our lives which only time can reveal. Searching for a language of one’s own – a poetic dialogue about spaces of asylum.

Senthuran Varatharajah fled with his family to Germany at the age of four months. He studied philosophy, theology and cultural studies in Marburg, Berlin and London. In 2016 he published his debut novel "Vor der Zunahme der Zeichen" (S. Fischer). Among others it was awarded with the 3Sat Prize at the "38th Days of German-Language Literature", the Alfred Doblin Fellowship of the Berlin Academy of Arts, the Berlin Senate Fellowship, the Kranichsteiner Literaturförderpreis, the Bremer Literaturförderpreis, the Chamisso Award and the Rauriser Literaturpreis. Varatharajah lives and works in Berlin.
