Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

Ror Wolf was born in Saalfeld (Thuringia) in 1932 and now lives in Mainz. One of the most interesting writers in Germany, he published his literary debut, Fortsetzung des Berichts [Continuation of the Report], in 1964 and has been awarded many prizes, most recently the 2004 Kassel Literary Prize for grotesque humor by the Brückner-Kühner Foundation. His writing style resembles that of a collage, joining often disparate pieces together, a technique he also uses for creating picture collages. He has used the pseudonym Raoul Tranchirer for his encyclopedic project, which parodies the traditional encyclopedias of the nineteenth century.
