    If it consoles you: I’m a native speaker of German living in a German-speaking country (Austria) and I never heard the names of most writers on this longlist, either. Those I know are Thomas Glavinić (Austrian!), Norbert Gstrein (Austrian!) and Daniel Kehlmann (Austrian and German, mainly known for ‘Measuring the World’), but I read only the mentioned novel by Daniel Kehlmann because most of modern German literature just isn’t my cup of tea.

    Thanks for sharing this list, Stu. I hope some of these books do make it into English versions. I recognise a few of the names but not the titles.
