New Books in German is an independent magazine that recommends contemporary untranslated books from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, and is an excellent resource for American editors.
NBG features fiction, nonfiction, and children's books. Fiction titles by German authors are collaboratively selected by a UK-based jury as well as by a U.S.-based jury, consisting of colleagues from the Goethe-Institut New York, the GBO, and professionals from the American publishing industry. Titles featured in NBG are guaranteed translation funding. We invite you to browse through NBG's Spring 2012 issue.
