Welcome at Droschl and thank you for your interest!

Droschl is in the German speaking world a well-known house for contemporary literature, publishing international authors like Lydia Davis, Oksana Sabuschko, Georgi Gospodinov or Julien Gracq as well as German writing authors like Iris Hanika, Ilma Rakusa, Thomas Stangl, Monique Schwitter, Thomas Jonigk or Werner Schwab. The names speak for themselves, they stand for an attitude that does not consider literature as representation but as protest and comment from the fringe.

We want to address the reader’s curiosity, those who want to discover something, who focus on words, whose one great love is language, many languages, the innumerable manners of speech.
