Reading and lecture
Der Spiegel named Ferdinand von Schirach a “fantastic story-teller”, the New York Times, “an unusual stylist”, the British Independent compared him to Kafka and Kleist and the Daily Telegraph wrote that he has “one of the most striking voices in European literature”. His latest play, “Terror”, is the “most successful contemporary play” (Die deutsche Bühne). Ferdinand von Schirach has been awarded several international literary prizes. He will be reading from his new book Strafe (Punishment) at the Kammerspiele which will be published by Luchterhand at the beginning of March, and he will also hold a lecture on the trial against Socrates.
