Imran Ayata - Songs of Gastarbeiter

5:00 P.M.
UVA Chapel 

Born in Ulm, Imran Ayata is the author, to date, of three volumes of fiction (see poster). He was a founding member of the anti-racist group Kanak-Attak, and co-edited the song collection Songs of Gastarbeiter (2013).

The German weekly Die Zeit calls Mein Name ist Revolution one of the best novels of 2011, praising Ayata as a writer who can “like few others” describe “the unhappy joys of love,” especially when they are combined with depictions of the “politically precarious situation of the Kurds” born in Germany to migrant parents..
