Eurotrash

Christian Kracht reads from his novel »Eurotrash«, in which a first person narrator once again goes on a journey. But this time, instead of indulging in the consumer world as in »Faserland«, the narrator ventures into his own inner self and into the abysmal history of his family, which is interwoven in both tragic and comic ways with that of the country of his birth. »A gentle memorial, a self-torn obeisance ― and a turning point in Kracht’s work: it’s love from now on.« [Der Freitag]
