"When Erich Kästner met Kurt Tucholsky ..." | Norbert Wollschläger reads from his latest novel

Book presentation and author reading
Norbert Wollschläger reads from his novel: "WETTERLEUCHTEN - The decade of playful freedom"
June 1, 2024 | 7:30 pm | House of the Guest Graal-Müritz

It is the time from the beginning of the First World War, the end of the German Empire, through fourteen years of flagging democracy and the so-called "Golden Twenties", while rapidly increasing anti-Semitism and growing nationalism up to Adolf Hitler and the eve of dictatorship herald the approaching weather lights.

At the fashionable Grand Hotel Brissago in Ticino, the writer Erich Kästner meets his long-admired colleague Kurt Tucholsky. Based on this little-documented, chance meeting, author Norbert Wollschläger follows the lives of these celebrated writers of their time, also retracing the footsteps of their colleagues Erich Maria Remarque and Emil Ludwig.

"With poetic precision and facts researched down to the last detail, Norbert Wollschläger's novel evokes an era that - in its fragile bourgeoisie - is both alien and familiar to us, an era that was full of enthusiasm for a "new era" and failed due to its fragmentation. In the hope that we will find better solutions." - Dr. Peter Böthig, literary scholar, publicist and curator, director of the Kurt Tucholsky Literature Museum Schloss Rheinsberg since 1993

"A carefully researched novel for which Norbert Wollschläger has found an impressive constellation in Brissago between the wars. The meeting between Kurt Tucholsky and Erich Kästner in 1930 provides many surprises: From Erich Maria Remarque, Emil Ludwig and some (too) unknown women - contemporary color of an unpleasant threshold time, told with humor." - Prof. Dr. Sven Hanuschek (Munich)

Norbert Wollschläger spent many years researching the lives of Erich Kästner and Kurt Tucholsky as well as the historical background of a time in which - as many say - freedom was squandered. In his novel, the sociologist, psychologist and publicist shares with the reader the fate of such diverse protagonists as Erich Kästner, Kurt Tucholsky, Erich Maria Remarque, the department store king Max "James" Emden - and others, especially the women who owned the hearts of these great spirits of their time.
