Kevin Vennemann Translates Chris Kraus Book for German Audiences

CLAREMONT, California - February 14, 2017

Kevin Vennemann, assistant professor of German, has translated Chris Kraus’ hugely influential feminist novel I Love Dick into German, as recently reported by several German newspapers.  Vennemann’s translation of the popular novel—which has been adapted as a television series by Amazon for release in May 2017—is part of a long-standing creative relationship between Kraus and the Scripps College professor. Vennemann’s last book, Sunset Boulevard, is written in buddy-road movie-style, detailing the duo’s travels together through LA.  Their unusual literary relationship and the release of the German version of Kraus’ book was covered in four major German newspapers, The Frankfurter Allgemeine, Die Zeit, the Sueddeutsche Zeitung and Die Welt.
