Anne Posten reading for Stonecutter

For those of you present at the launch on Thursday, you may have been aware that we had a few technical difficulties on the night, one of which was our malfunctioning projector! Three of our esteemed contributors - Mark O' Connell, Kit Schulter and Anne Posten - kindly recorded readings of their work for us to play on the night. Alas, this was not to be.

However, we didn't want the videos to go unseen. So, here is translator Anne Posten reading an excerpt from her translation of Tankred Dorst's Der Schöne Ort (This Beautiful Place), featured in Issue 2 of Stonecutter. The full length novella is forthcoming this year from Hanging Loose Press, and I would encourage you all to pick up a copy - it's a fantastic read!
