A star, that bears your name. Lutz Seiler about Berlin in 1990


A conversation with Lutz Seiler about his novel "Stern 111". It centers around a young man in Berlin at the time of German reunification in 1989/90. The squatters’ euphoria in Prenzlauer Berg at the time – which the author himself has experienced – did it benefit his writing? What does he feel today when he walks through the streets where the novel is set? And what does all this have to do with Rilke's loneliness?
