Daniel Bowles

Daniel Bowles’ translations include works by Christian Kracht, Thomas Meinecke, Alexander Kluge, Rainald Goetz, and Xaver Bayer. His academic publications focus on postwar and contemporary German literature, including most recently The Ends of Satire (De Gruyter, 2015), a study of satiric writing and theory since 1950. For his translation of Kracht’s Imperium: A Fiction of the South Seas, he was awarded the 2016 Helen and Kurt Wolff Translator’s Prize, and in 2017 he received a Max Geilinger Translation Grant for the forthcoming translation of Kracht’s The Dead. Bowles currently teaches German Studies at Boston College.
