Event details
Details Peter Schneider is one of the leading intellectuals publishing in Europe and the United States. His features have appeared in such diverse vennues as Die Zeit, Frankfurter Rundschau, Spiegel, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Guardian, New York Times, Le Monde, La Stampa and others. His novel Lenz achieved cult-status when it was published in 1973. Der Mauerspringer (The Wall Jumper, 1982) is still considered one of the very best books about Berlin and was recently re-published as a Penguin Classic. Schneider is also well-known for the movies he scripted, including Das Versprechen (1995). He is involved with the German PEN and was one of the writers who went into the former Yugoslavia to monitor the wars.

His latest novel, Die Lieben meiner Mutter, is due out in May 2013 in German. A collection of essays on Berlin will be published in English later this year by Random House.
