On Life, Death, and this and that of the Rest

“When one lives and suffers fascism on a daily basis it makes them different. I had not suffered it. I saw it through something like a fence. When I peered through it, I feared for my life. But I felt safe in the knowledge that I was not at its mercy.” Author Urs Widmer shared his thoughts and experiences in the Frankfurt Lecture on Poetics he delivered in 2007.
His insightful words have been published by Seagull Books in “On Life, Death, and this and that of the Rest”.

One Day A Year

What was special about 27th September for author Christa Wolf?
Absolutely nothing at all… Until the year 1960.
That year, a Moscow newspaper issued a call to writers – Describe 27-09-1960 as precisely as possible.
Wolf responded. And she didn’t stop with 1960, she continued the practice every year till she passed away in December 2011.
Her last eleven diary entries have been compiled in the book One Day A Year by Seagull Books.
