Paolo Giordano: Tasmania

»Tasmania«, translated into German by Barbara Kleiner, is about a journalist who goes to a climate conference and travels to numerous cities and countries, never to return home to his wife. But this crisis is not only that of a couple, but also of a generation and the world as we know it. In writing, the author ventures into a place of self-revelation where demons can be tamed, and fear can be conquered. Actor Ulrich Matthes will read from the novel.

With the kind support of the Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Berlino.

Read by Ulrich Matthes.

Hosted by Knut Elstermann.

The event will be in Italian and German.
