Anne Tyler, Nina Hoss and a redhead by the side of the road

English German

Anne Tyler, one of the “greatest living writers” according to the Guardian, grants us one of her rare public appearances and celebrates the world premiere of her new novel in Cologne. The Pulitzer Prize winner (“Breathing Lessons”) tells the story of Micah Mortimer in Redhead by the Side of the Road. Micah is a creature of habit with an impeccably organized life. But then a series of surprises throw his life off-kilter, possibly changing him forever ... Host: Margarete von Schwarzkopf; German text: Nina Hoss
