The Interview

Accompanying the rise of a star is kind of fun – you get dragged to premiers and interviews – all that glamorous stuff us normals usually get spared. And so it happened last week that young author Willi Hetze whom I had already reported about gave a TV interview to a local Dresden TV station about his new and upcoming short-story book “Das Unbegreifliche der Katzenwege”, Taschenbuch, 190 Seiten, Verlag zwiebook, Deutsch, € 12,90

The backdrop of the interview was sort of fun too: a small fast-food kiosk/pub “Curry & Co.”. And no, that is no Indian place… they serve “Currywurst” (a sausage with hot, spicy sauce) in all kinds of flavours.

But ’nuff said, enjoy the pictures :).

Book Premiere: “Das Unbegreifliche der Katzenwege”

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).
