Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

MOSEBACH, Martin
Martin Mosebach, born in 1951, lives in Frankfurt. After attending law school, he decided to become a freelance writer. His work comprises novels and stories, as well as plays, film scripts, and libretti. Das Bett [1983, The Bed), Ruppertshain [1992], Westend [1992], Die Türkin [1999, The Turkish Woman], and EIne lange Nacht [2000, A Long Night] are considered his most important novels. His novel Der Nebelfürst [2001, The Prince of Mist] has received high critical acclaim and has even been called Mosebachs best work yet. It tells an adventure storing involving con artists with colonial aspirations, the satiric and realistic style matching an "absurd" episode in German history.

Die Geschichte (The Story ) from Das Grab der Pulcinellen (The Tomb of the Pulcinellas): Vol. 4, No. 1

Der Nebelfürst (The Prince of Mist) from Der Nebelfürst (Frankfurt am Main: Eichborn Verlag, 2001): Vol. 7, No. 2/3
