A passionate book person, a born critic, a key figure in post-war Germany’s intellectual history: Walter Boehlich (1921—2006) shaped the German literary world as head editor at Suhrkamp Verlag and later as a writer, editor and translator. He also made his voice heard as a commentator on politics over several decades. This selection of his writing marks his 90th birthday. It sheds light on an advocate of literature who accepted only the highest criteria. His strictness was coupled with great passion and love – for authors, for texts, for sincerity. This volume provides a varied insight into his work and erects a worthy monument to him. It contains criticism and introductions, essays and polemical writing, columns and commentaries from the major areas of his work, in thematic and chronological order.
