Ulrike Edschmid is eighty: The Party

Part of their force to unfold them from the first read, the Rest later in the memory, the all of a sudden come across a can, in the case of exit in Italy, near Rome, a rainy walk through an Avenue on the former border of West-Berlin, a view from the highway on a castle in the Rhön, or in the evening up to the Windows on a Spanish Local in Charlottenburg.

The books by Ulrike Edschmid based on facts. Most (or all?) her figures, sometimes, only with your initials named, have real role models. But none of the impression of privacy is, because of all the intimacy that exists between author and character is not always, anything in the sense of delivering.

"The Disappearance of Philip S.". "A man falls". You could call the sober, clinging to the word is not some Uninvolved, and this is not the literature by Ulrike Edschmid explicitly. Ulrike Edschmid is Involved. She is in her books. As A Child. As A College Student. As A Beloved. Than Abandoned. As A Dressmaker. As A Mother. As A Woman.

Is what makes them so autobiographical, or at least auto-fiction Writing? There are reminder texts? Yes, because what you are told, has taken place in your life.

In the case of your man who fell for the renovation of your apartment, which was their home, of the head, and over the years, a piece of freedom of movement reclaimed. Your books are named after these people, because it is not you yourself, to your Writing. She is only of interest in so far as these other due to their connection contour win. You need yourself as a character in order to create the figures, which are more important to her.
