Sven Amtsberg

Superbuhei und so

He is a gifted entertainer, a literary "charlatan, soap and eyewash" (DIE ZEIT), an inventor of world-new literary formats, a "master of the small form", master of hundreds, perhaps thousands of wonderfully wicked short stories, soaked in black humor, hard-hitting, also delicately melancholic and surreally out of line, in any case great. Last year his first novel was published: "Superbuhei". A quirky, furious debut with an unbeatable final punchline about the pub owner Jesse Bronske, who once fled from his twin brother Aaron - and now feels pursued by him. Sven Amtsberg, who is now also drawn to the Baltic Sea, reads from the novel and short stories.
