Later this week, Uwe Schütte, Reader in German at Aston University, will be hosting a conference on the novelist Ulrich Peltzer who has established himself as one of the leading literary voices in contemporary literature. His last novel „Teil der Lösung“ was recently translated into English as „Part of the Solution“ ( http://press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/distributed/P/bo11455314.html ).
The public conference “Die Gegenwart erzählen: Ulrich Peltzer und die Ästhetik des Politischen” is taking place on the 5th of December, 2013, at the prestigious Brecht-Haus in Berlin. Peltzer himself will be present for the conference. In the evening he will also be reading passages from his latest, still unpublished novel.
