The Club We All Play In
In these texts, which were composed by Jörg Fauser between 1963 and 1987, we get to know him as a visionary and fan, yet also as a nit-picker and blasphemer. Vicious in parts, while others abound with admiration. A varied volume that contains texts about writers from Gryphius to Grass; that gives us a radio report about crime literature and a conversation with Bukowski; that offers an insight into embarrassing encounters between literary figures and, above all, that makes one thing very clear: Fauser’s love of literature.
»The imponderables of the literature industry are vast, even gargantuan. How much simpler, in comparison, are those of politics.«
