Absinthe #18 – Fassbinder

The latest issue of Absinthe: New European Writing is out including my essay “Rainer Werner Fassbinder: the Balzac of West Germany”. Commemorating the 30th anniversary of Fassbinder’s death at 37 years old I spoke with filmmaker Tom Kalin and president of the Fassbinder Foundation and his former editor Juliane Lorenz about the prolific filmmaker’s legacy today, his lesser known work (such as his science fiction film World on a Wire) and the German Human Comedy he was trying to put together.

The issue also includes a short play by Vlad Zografi, and poetry & prose by Marie-Claire Bancquart, Nichita Stanescu, Pia Tafdrup, Sladjan Lipovec, Marco Candida, Kristina Lugn, Hernan Migoya, Marko Pogacar, Iulian Ciocan, Jose Corredor-Matheos, Kamil Bouska, Jiri Brynda, and a brief intro to Galician literature featuring Xabier Cordal, Anton Lopo, Anxo Rei Ballesteros, and Manuel Rivas. There are also communiqué’s from Copenhagen, Rome, and Helsinki, along with cover art and a portfolio by Cyril Kuhn.

    Glad to hear it. I really like it, aside from the fact that I write for it.
