The Art Of Writing

After her highly acclaimed debut »Sommerhaus, später« [tr: Summer House, Later], Judith Hermann published several volumes of short stories and novels, for which she was honoured with numerous awards, including the Kleist Prize and the Friedrich Hölderlin Prize. For her, writing means facing the void all over again each time: »Having written books in no way means being able to write. Every book means writing from the beginning, everything always goes back to the beginning, the blank sheet of paper is completely white every time.«
