On the Edge: Writing in Post-Reunified Germany
May 1 | Deutsches Haus NYU | NYC
With Clemens Meyer and Antje Rávic Strubel; moderated by Zaia Alexander
Antje Rávic Strubel was fifteen when the Berlin Wall fell and has written several award-winning novels with characters who are on the edge. Clemens Meyer burst onto the German literary scene in 2006 with Als wir träumten (While we were dreaming), a novel of disaffected young men in Leipzig at the end of the ‘80s. They’ll read from their work and talk about what it’s like to belong to the Post-Wall generation.
