German writer Inka Parei has been blogging from a campervan on the South Island as part of a mobile writer’s residency sponsored by the Goethe-Institut. You can read about her travels so far here. Inka’s first novel in English-language translation The Shadow Boxing Woman was published by Seagull last year. Inka and her translator Katy Derbyshire were recently nominated for the Best Translated Book Award. Inka’s second and third novels are also being translated by Katy for Seagull Books, and you can get a preview in the current issue of Sport.
