Demi Anter

Small Machine


BERLIN is a place where brazen ghosts wave to the living, where rock ’n’ roll suicides collide
with family myths. Small Machine is an intimate portrayal of young womanhood and coming of
age in an unforgiving city, the capital known as much for raucous hedonism as it is for Kaffee-
und-Kuchen. Falling in love (and out) in Schillerkiez, clandestine encounters in smoke-filled
Kneipen, nighttime dances by the Spree, winter depressions weathered, summer lakes
plundered— no cobble is left unturned in Demi Anter’s soaring debut.

DEMI ANTER is an Austrian-American writer and performer. Her work has appeared in Magma,
Banshee, Ninth Letter, Figure 1, and The Times UK, as well as on BBC Radio London. She has
been a featured performer at Glastonbury Festival, Electric Picnic, the Scottish Storytelling
Centre, and Poetry Ireland. After five years in Berlin, she now lives in London where she is
completing an MFA at Rose Bruford College of Theatre & Performance. Demi's debut
collection Small Machine is forthcoming with Write Bloody UK in 2022. To find out more, visit
