Carl Hanser Verlag was established by its eponymous owner in 1928 in Munich, and its founder’s interests in both literature and science have been maintained to the present day. The firm publishes fiction and non-fiction for both adults and children. Its authors include Italo Calvino, Umberto Eco, Jostein Gaarder, Lars Gustafsson, Milan Kundera, Philip Roth, Peter Høeg, Colson Whitehead, Alfred Brendel, and ten Nobel prizewinners, among them Herta Müller and Elias Canetti, whose works have been translated into more than thirty different languages. You can find many established contemporary authors on Hanser’s fiction list. Authors like Arno Geiger, Anja Kampmann, Karen Köhler and Michael Köhlmeier received a lot of praise and attention for their recent works.
