Daniel Kehlmann (born 13 January 1975) is a German language novelist and playwright of both Austrian and German nationality. His novel Die Vermessung der Welt (translated into English by Carol Brown Janeway as Measuring the World, 2006) is the best selling book in the German language since Patrick Süskind's Perfume was released in 1985. According to the New York Times it was the world's second best selling novel in 2006 [1]. All his subsequent novels reached the number one spot on Germany's SPIEGEL bestseller list and were translated into English. He collaborated with Jonathan Franzen and Paul Reitter on Franzen's 2013 book The Kraus Project. His play The Mentor, translated by Christopher Hampton, opened at Theatre Royal, Bath in April 2017 starring F. Murray Abraham and transferred to the London West End in July 2017 [2]. In October 2017 his play Christmas Eve, also translated by Christopher Hampton, premiered at Theatre Royal [3]. His novella You Should Have Left is currently being adapted into a movie starring Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried [4].
