Martin Suter, our beloved Basti, and the highs and lows of soccer life


Bastian Schweinsteiger, hero of the 2014 World Cup Final in Rio, is also the hero of Martin Suter’s new novel. In One of You: Bastian Schweinsteiger, Suter shares true and nearly true stories from the life of a man who was certainly not set up from birth to accomplish everything a soccer player can. And he reveals how Basti achieved great success nonetheless. After his latest best sellers, Martin Suter could have gone in various directions, so it was a surprise to see one of the most successful German-language writers focus on perhaps the most prominent player in recent soccer history. But maybe it’s not that surprising after all, as Martin Suter is always turning his hand to new literary genres. And this time it’s the biography of a soccer star. In a workshop discussion, Martin Suter talks about the challenge, joy and pitfalls of this work. Host: Shelly Kupferberg
