Raw Material Elements

Early Prose and Poems
Published by Diogenes as Rohstoff Elements
Original Title: Rohstoff Elements. Early Prose and Poems

A new compilation of Fauser's early prose and poems – direct, brutal, and fierce.

Reflections on the unchecked urges and diverse hungers of an entire generation.

»Writers who have never written a word, smugglers who’ve never had anything to smuggle, agents with no expense accounts and no future.«

Even in Fauser’s early poems and experimental prose, there is no trace of inauthenticity and invention. Someone is living exactly what he writes, what he yells or whispers in the form of words. There is a sense of Fauser’s first heroes Kerouac and Burroughs, who may well have lured him to Tophane, to addiction, and to writing.
In these texts, ranging from Beat to cut-up, Fauser gives his all. This is the collection to rediscover him with.

With an afterword by Jürgen Ploog.

»A recommended read, even – and especially – if you are already familiar with the texts. Different details shine through in the new context.«
