Our points of departure were quite simple. We wanted to include as many interesting poets as we could find from the last fifteen years or so, along with several older, significant, and underrecognized ‘big guns.’ For prose fiction, a considerably broader and denser field, our approach has been diagnostic and investigative: to see who right now and in the past decade may be considered heirs of the ‘grand signeurs’ of postwar German literature.
