With new books by Andrea Wolf, Claudius Seidl, Christoph Ranzier and Caroline Ring
Today in Worth Reading Magazine it’s about the “Fantastic Rebel”. That is, about the poets of early romanticism, to whom Andrea Woolf devotes her new book.
It is also about the genius cult in Goethe’s Weimar. Carl August Böttiger accompanied him at the time as a kind of early gossip reporter: the German poet Olympus from a keyhole perspective! We present the audiobook.
Speaking of gossip reporters: Do you still remember Baby Schimmerlos from “Kir Royal”? FAZ journalist Claudius Seidl has now dedicated an easy-to-read biography to the creator of the fantastic TV series, Helmut Dietl, and we’re talking to him about it.
It’s also about creating a successful publishing company in difficult times: we present to you Trabanten Verlag.
Austrian author Christoph Ransmayer remembered his childhood songs and wrote wonderful poems and poems: “Unter den Zuckerhimmel” is the title of Anselm Kiefer’s wonderful watercolor volume.
Then it comes to birds, who are increasingly invading our cities as a new home: “Wanderers Between Worlds. What Birds Say in Cities” is the title of Caroline Ring’s remarkable book.
