Voices From Elsewhere: Dagmar Leupold (English)
German writer and poet Dagmar Leupold’s publications include Wie Treibholz (Like Driftwood), Federgewicht (Featherweight) and Die Lust der Frauen auf Seite 13 (Women’s Desire on Page 13).
For our Gala Night of Storytelling: Voices From Elsewhere, she recounts the story of the vintage suede boots that transported her across the Baltic to an icy dream of her adolescence.
Translated by Leah Gerber and read by Katherine Tonkin. The German version, read by Leupold herself, is also available.
