Content

Thomas Brussig writes the colourful biography of famous author Thomas Brussig – accidentally reinventing our present in the process.

An evening in East Berlin in 1991: Reunification has been cancelled. Now as then, the wall divides Germany. Writer Thomas Brussig, drunk with the applause of the crowd, vows: he will not travel to West Germany until all East Germans can. He will not own a telephone until everyone else can as well.
Nor will he read The Unbearable Lightness of Being until it is no longer banned. He will need to keep his promise, as East Germany lives on …

“I have read Thomas Brussig, and if I had another life, I would translate his novels into English – just to show doubting Americans how unbelievably funny German literature can be.”
Jonathan Franzen
