EVENT: In Conversation With… German Contemporary Author Christopher Kloeble
Posted by goethedoesatlanta
As our 40th anniversary year continues, we wouldn’t want a couple of weeks to go by without another event for you! So, join us next week as we welcome German contemporary author, Christopher Kloeble to the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta!
Join the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta and Graywolf Press for an evening with German contemporary author, Christopher Kloeble.
Christopher Kloeble is an award winning novelist, playwright and scriptwriter born in Munich/Germany, studied in Dublin, at the German Creative Writing Program Leipzig and at the University for Film and Television in Munich. He has written for the Süddeutsche Zeitung, DIE ZEIT and tageszeitung. His plays U-Turn and Memory have been staged at major theatres in Vienna, Munich, Heidelberg and Nuremberg. He lives in Berlin and Delhi.
Almost Everything Very Fast, Christopher Kloeble’s U.S. debut, is a sensitive and dramatic family saga and page-turning road novel all in one.
A little about the book:
Albert is nineteen, grew up in an orphanage, and never knew his mother. His father Fred has been given five months left to live, but is the only one who can help him learn more about his background.
With time working against them, Albert and Fred set out on an adventurous voyage of discovery that leads them via the underground sewers into the distant past–all the way back to a night in August 1912, and to the story of a forbidden love.
The reading will be followed by a Q&A session and a wine and cheese reception.
