Frank Witzel, his father and an intimate shipwreck


In his novel, Inniger Schiffbruch [“Intimate Shipwreck”], Frank Witzel grapples intensively with his father’s legacy. In constant doubt about the truth of his own memories, Witzel is an approachable and gifted narrator. Starting from the personal, he succeeds in capturing a snapshot of post-war society in the new West Germany. A personal family story becomes a tableau of society in the post-war years. Host: Christian Schärf
