Sport is the place to discover the best new New Zealand writers. Each annual issue is a superb snapshot of the cutting edge of New Zealand’s literary scene, and Sport 40 is no exception, offering 300 pages of fiction, poetry and essays.
In honour of New Zealand’s turn as country of honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2012, this issue also features 133 pages of translations of contemporary writing in German. Included are some of Germany’s most celebrated writers—Durs Grünbein, Alexander Kluge, Michael Krüger. Others are appearing in English for the first time. Several—Jenny Erpenbeck, Inka Parei, Jan Wagner—will visit New Zealand in the course of 2012.
Sport is edited and published by Fergus Barrowman, who founded the magazine in 1988 with Elizabeth Knox, Nigel Cox and Damien Wilkins, and with assistance from Bill Manhire, Alan Preston and Andrew Mason. Sport was published twice a year until 2003, and is now annual.
The publication of Sport is supported by a grant from Creative New Zealand.
The translations are supported by a grant from the Goethe-Institut.
