Kirsten Fuchs [ Germany ]

Gast des ilb 2006

Kirsten Fuchs was born in Karl-Marx-Stadt (Chemnitz) in 1977 and grew up in East Berlin. She studied German Language and Literature for several semesters and completed her training as a carpenter. Two years after winning her first literary prize in the renowned Berlin-based »Open Mike« competition, her debut novel appeared – »Die Titanic and Herr Berg« (2005; t: The Titanic and Mr Berg). With caustic, playful language, it describes an ardent love affair in the present climate of German hopelessness from the dual perspective of the two protagonists. A collection of columns Fuchs has written for the Berlin daily paper »taz« came out this summer under the title»Zieh dir das mal an!« (2006; t: Just put that on!).
