Swiss writer Peter Stamm believes we don’t read literature to get news, but to have it confirmed that the world is as it is, that people are as we are. That we all speak a common language, can understand each other and that our life has a meaning.
Listen to him as he explores these thoughts and on how he made literature out of ordinary lives and believes in living the present.
Peter Stamm is an award-winning author who has published eight novels, five collections of stories, three children’s books and several radio and stage plays. His books have been translated into 39 languages.
