She was guest author at the 2008 Women in German Conference at Snowbird, Utah, October 23­26, where she read from a recent text, Wie Weiter (Where Do We Go From Here?, 2006). In the discussion that followed, Krauß answered questions about topics ranging from her writing techniques to the role of literature in the post-Wall world and her most recent impressions of the United States. I conducted the following interview with Krauß in person and by email over several weeks in January 2009, with the intention of recreating as well as expanding upon some of her remarks at the conference.
