Me being a cat owner I know that cats are incomprehensible. Last night young writer Willi Hetze took this fact to a completely new level when he presented his debut book “Das Unbegreifliche der Katzenwege” (The Incomprehensible of Cats’ Paths) – a collection of short stories. The main story is a surreal, socially twisted plot about a young man who just arrives at a big city from his home village to go to college. Unnerved and confused as he is – he gets advice from an ever changing cat how to navigate through the so unfamiliar metropolis.
Here are some of the photos I took at last night’s book reading at the Literaturhaus Villa Augustin (Erich-Kästner Museum) in Dresden. And here you can find a first review of Hetze’s book (in German).
