„Trembling, while the bear kept moving over the board, Robin tried to figure out how the hell to turn the thing off. It didn’t have a switch – she’d already noticed that – and in her desperation she couldn’t find any other solution. She picked it up and tried to open the base with the point of a pair of scissors.”

Each semester an author is invited to teach at the Peter Szondi Institute of Comparative Literature. In addition to a seminar at the Freie Universität Berlin public readings and events with the guest professors are organized in Berlin and other German cities.
