Der Literarische Salon mit Eduardo Halfon

Born in Guetamala in 1971 as the son of Holocaust survivors, Eduardo Halfon writes in all his books about the past that will never be overcome, even in Germany. One often thinks that each chapter of a novel is a short story in its own right, and at the same time that each book is a chapter in a single great novel of life that oscillates between historical horror and fantastic poetry. The Neue Zürcher Zeitung described Halfon's work as "witty and truthful, cheeky and clever, erotic and melancholy", containing everything "that makes literature exciting". Now his latest novel, "The Duel", has been published in German to international critical acclaim. And after reading it, we look forward all the more to what is currently probably the most exciting voice in contemporary Latin American literature.
