Partly inspired by the acclaimed work of American short story writers Lydia Davis and Joy Williams, Perspective Drifts Like a Log on a River explores the full range of human emotions and behavior in a laconic style imbued with rich humor and profound irony. Often autobiographical, as well as powerfully imagined, the pensees in this collection will take the reader on a sojourn across landscapes both familiar and exotic. Of the many story collections by the author, Perspective Drifts Like a Log on a River comes closest to demonstrating the full reach of his imagination and creative powers. Illustrations by his wife Susanne Riette enhance the book.

Broadsheets

Broadsheets

Broadsheets (Einblattdrucke) are pages-printed on one side, with which the content, text and picture, is an entirity. The dimensions are 26 x 17 cm; edition of 50 signed by both the artist and author. Since the 15th century they have served as a quick form of spreading information about current events or news. They are the predecessor to the newspaper. Broadsheets were relevant up to the 18th century in all areas of life, whether it be politics, war, law, and also for the extraordinary and sensational news. The first print of the American Declaration of Independence in German was a broadsheet (German History Museum). These culturally important historical broadsheets are treasures and in their rarity have a high collector value.

An Eastern-European man flees from bizarre Romania and experiences Germany as a Ship of Fools: a country with doctors who need treatment, neighbours one only meets in chat rooms, huge numbers of gifted children, and mothers still wanting to feed their offspring, who have long since joined generation 50+. But in addition to people like you and me there are also Charles Bronson, Frankenstein's monster, Woody Allen and, again and again, Charlie Chaplin, because life is a absurdly mad 3D movie.

The Raum (space) which Ingolf Brökels opens to the reader from several perspectives is a historical space in which an I lyrically highlights important stages in his development - from the post-war childhood over the socialisation in Eastern Germany, from the annihilation of his Lusatian soft coal mining home town over the experiences and insights of the 1989 reunification and post-reunification period to the immediate present. In the process the themes expand from national problems, fashions and moods towards the global.

A collection of short stories about families.

How their members love and hate each other, quietly and carefully, what they want to inherit or (almost always) unfairly, too little, furthermore the wrong thing have already inherited - the number of wishes and hopes is unlimited.

And of course, when faced with the mean, jealous outside world, they never stop loving each other mercilessly...

Walter Leistikow was able to capture the mood lyric and aesthetic enchantment of Berlin's Grunewald lakes like no other painter. At Kleiner Wannsee he created garden paintings with plants and flower bosquets rife with impressionistic colour. The secret garden as a mystic place, bridges symbolising connections, houses hidden behind trees as metaphors for home - settings that give free rein to dreams. The highlands, the surging ocean, and long-necked birds like swans and cranes also captivated him. Leistikow was a landscapist with a special feel for nature.

Filuteks Handbuch der Fragen

Filuteks Handbuch der Fragen

Everything is all right "at the dreams fair." When you look for the small town of your childhood and resume your life where "you left it lying". Taking a walk through the place awakens memories of the insane Marie, the asthmatic grandmother, the boy who watched the town from atop a tree, of Luisa, who believes she needs to justify her life - a web of stories and perspectives. Then the narrator leaves this calming province and invents an author. The "micro novel" Handbuch der Fragen is his creation, and Filutek his big city hero.
