Michael Hofmann


Michael Hofmann writes, reviews, translates, and teaches. He is currently a judge for the 2018 International MAN Booker Prize, and is preparing the Clarendon Lectures, which he will deliver at the end of the year in Oxford. His translation of Alfred Doblin’s Berlin Alexanderplatz is due out in March from the NYRB Classics series; another translation, of Hans Fallada’s Little Man, What Now? appears later this year from Penguin in England, as does a new book of his poems, One Lark, One Horse (with Faber).

Hofmann publishes reviews and essays in the London Review of Books, New York Review of Books, the New York Times Book Review, and Poetry. His pieces have been collected in two books, Behind the Lines and Where Have You Been? He also teaches graduate and undergraduate poetry workshops and an undergraduate course in Creative Non-Fiction.
