Thomas von Steinaecker [ Germany ]

Thomas von Steinaecker was born in the Bavarian town of Traunstein in 1977. He studied German, English and American language and literature in Munich and Cincinnati, and received his doctorate in 2006. Throughout his studies he worked as a freelance journalist and published several short stories. His much acclaimed first novel, »Wallner beginnt zu fliegen« (2007; t: Wallner begins to fly), is a family saga that spans three generations and questions whether it is possible to tell a family’s real story. His radio play »Meine Tonbänder sind mein Widerstand« (t: My cassettes are my resistance), first broadcast in 2007 also proved very popular. His various awards include the Aspekte Literature Prize, the Bayerischer Kunstförderpreis and, most recently, the Literaturförderpreis der Deutschen Wirtschaft. Since 2007 he has lived as freelance writer and journalist in Augsburg.
